CYPRESS — The Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department responded to the report of a structure fire on the fourth floor of Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital just after 1:30 a.m. this morning (Sept. 1, 2018).
According to CFVFD reports, the first arriving units investigated and found active alarms and smoke reported on the fourth floor in a patient room area. Patients were temporarily moved into the hallways, the hospital was not evacuated.
Fire crews checked rooftop air conditioning units and discovered a compressor fan at 132 degrees Fahrenheit on their thermal imaging camera.
No obvious burned wires or fire damage was observed. Once the unit was isolated, the odor of smoke diminished and the incident was resolved.
No injuries were reported.
The CFVFD was assisted by the Cypress Creek Volunteer Fire Department.
