We begin tonight in Cambria County where a fire broke out at Richland Healthcare and Rehabilitation

You can see some of them covered with blankets in wheelchairs outside.

Chief Wes Meyers tells us a fire broke out just before 8 o’clock near an hvac unit in the A Wing of the building.

He says crews were able to contain the fire to that room which mainly sustained smoke damage.

Chief Meyers says four people were taken to the hospital out of precaution but no significant injuries were reported.
