Hazard ARH Medical Mall evacuates for fire; VA clinic closed on Friday

PERRY Co., Ky. (WYMT) - The Hazard ARH Medical Mall was evacuated Thursday morning because of a small electrical fire.

Fire Chief Sam Stacy said they got the call about a fire alarm going off at the mall around 11 a.m.

Officials said they did find smoke in the building.

"Upon arrival our units found smoke coming from a electrical breaker box in the back part of the building," Stacy said. "Evidently the maintenance people were working on it and they had a small fire."

The medical mall closed for the rest of the day to get rid of the smoke.

The Veterans Affairs clinic at the medical mall will be closed on Friday due to the fire.
