Fire At Western State Hospital Leads to Evacuation

Western State Hospital evacuated all buildings Thursday morning after a fire was discovered in the elevator motor on the rooftop. The Hopkinsville Fire Department responded with several units as the maintenance department worked to locate the problem. Fire Inspector Cecilia Cloos told The News Edge all but one building was cleared for re-entry after inspection.


The elevator in Building 63 will remain out of service until it passes inspection.
