A fire in the laundry room at Pilot Butte Rehabilitation, 1876 NE Hwy 20, was held in check by the facility's fire sprinkler system until fire crews arrived to complete extinguishment. A fire alarm call was received at 3:32 pm and shortly thereafter was upgraded to a structure fire response when facility staff discovered smoke coming from the laundry room. Upon arrival, crews found smoke from the laundry room and found that the sprinkler system had activated. Crews completed extinguishment and there was minimal heat and water damage. There were no injuries and no smoke entered the patient area of the building. The fire sprinkler and alarm systems were back in operation within approximately two hours. The exact cause of the fire is under investigation.
