Fire broke out in what looks like the roof or attic area of an elderly assisted living facility tonight in Colorado:
(9news.com) "ADAMS COUNTY – A fire broke out on the third floor of an assisted living facility on Friday night forcing at least 50 people outside of the building. The South Adams County Fire Department was called to the Madonna Plaza around 7:30 p.m. on a report of an electrical odor.
When crews arrived on scene, they discovered there was a fire on the third floor of the building. The building was evacuated. The fire department says five units were affected. Ten residents were moved to another facility Friday night. The fire department says 40 others would remain at the Madonna Plaza.
Firefighters are still investigating what caused the fire, but believe a lightning strike may have started the fire."
Keep in mind that assisted living is for the elderly and others who cannot ambulate or "get around" on their own without assistance. As I've said before, these types of facilities, nursing homes and hospitals are all sitting ducks for terrorist activity whether it be arson, carbon monoxide or a bomb because evacuation is tedious and time consuming.
