CASSVILLE, Mo. (KY3) - Mercy Hospital in Cassville, Mo. will remain closed temporarily after a fire damaged the roof Monday morning.

The fire started in an air conditioning unit located on the hospital’s roof. Firefighters contained the fire shortly after 7 a.m.

Staff loaded overnight patients into ambulances. They took them to the Mercy Hospital in Aurora.

“They’re all fine,” said Mercy spokeswoman Sonya Kullman. “Their families have been notified right now at the hospital we have an EMS crew a doctor and a nurse standing by at the ER in case any emergencies come in by private car so they can help those people and get them transferred on to more appropriate care while the hospital power is shut down.”

Nobody inside the hospital suffered any injuries. The extent of the damage isn’t known yet.
