Pump failure causes partial evacuation at hospital
No patients or clinic staff were affected. No injuries were reported.
Business office employees reported a smell of smoke in the lower level of the building, Freeman said.
Fire crews from Edgerton and Milton responded shortly before 2 p.m. and found a blower motor for the ground heat pump had failed, according to a news release from Edgerton Fire Chief Brian Demrow. The lower level of the building was ventilated.
People were allowed to return to the building at about 2:15 p.m.
The new Edgerton Hospital and Health Services building, 11101 N. Sherman Road, opened for patients Oct. 1.
