Boise, IDAHO - Investigators with the Boise Police and Fire Departments have completed their review of the cause of an early morning fire in a utility closet at St. Luke's Boise Medical Center.
The evidence collected indicates that the fire started in a trash bag, however, the actual cause of the fire could not be identified. Consequently, fire investigators have ruled the cause of the fire as “undetermined.”
The fire was discovered at 2:38 a.m., Feb. 4, in an utility closet on the 8th floor of the Boise Medical Center that is used to store soiled linen and trash. The fire was contained to that area and the sprinkler system in the area functioned as expected. A facilities mechanic used a fire extinguisher to completely extinguish the fire. Boise Fire Department responded. The source of the fire is still under investigation.
As a precaution the hospital evacuated patients, staff and family members from the 8th floor to other available areas of the hospital. There were no injuries as a result of the incident, however there was minor water damage to the Mother Baby Care Unit.
Cleanup to clean up the water damage and clear the unit of any smoke odor was completed over the weekend and the 8ths floor is now reopened.
This is the second fire on the St. Luke's Boise Medical Center Campus in the last several weeks. On Friday, Jan. 21, a fire was reported in the sub-basement of the hospital when a pump overheated. That fire caused minimal damage and resulted in no injuries. It's important to recognize the both fires are completely unrelated.
