CBS 7 News
It was a cold night for residents to be evacuated from the Buena Vida nursing home, but many walked or were wheeled right next door to Aladdin’s Castle to warm up while fire fighters surrounded and investigated the fire in the nursing home.
Some residents were outside for over thirty minutes. Family members rushed to the nursing home property and Aladdin’s Castle looking for loved ones and asking how they could help.
By about 6:30 PM residents were able to enter back into the nursing home.
Administrators tell us no one was hurt, and they will be spending the night warming up the residents with hot chocolate, tea, and coffee.
No comment on how the fire started.
