Patients Evacuated In Henderson Hospital Fire

    Fire forces medical personnel to scramble to evacuate dozens of patients from an East Texas Hospital. Around 6 tonight, fire crews were called to Henderson Memorial Hospital because of a fire in a ventilation shaft. 32 patients were evacuated, but the fire was quickly contained. Hospital personnel say thankfully no one was injured or suffered smoke inhalation.  

All patients were returned to the hospital about an hour after the fire was put out and the building ventilated.
