First responders in Crossville went to Life Care Center on Justice Street this afternoon to a report of fire and smoke in the building. Firefighters quickly extinguished the small blaze located around one of the nurses stations.
Authorities say three residents and two staff members were transported to Cumberland Medical Center to be evaluated for minor smoke inhalation. Administration staff is working to relocate residents to another part of the building that was unaffected. A cause of the fire is being determined.
