Workers and Firefighters Injured in Three Fires around the Triangle

Three separate fires around the Triangle last week left firefighters and hospital workers injured.

The first broke out early Tuesday at Durham Regional Hospital and may have started from use of a defibrillator. Although the fire was initially reported as an explosion, according to WRAL.com, the preliminary findings by the State Department of Health and Human Services concluded that a spark from a defibrillator ignited the fire.

FireAlarm2_07022014Four employees were treated for smoke inhalation, and one critically ill patient died.

The second fire broke out on Thursday in an abandoned house in Johnston County. The roof collapsed on a firefighter who was battling the fire at the house that had been vacant or a couple of years.

The firefighter was kept overnight for observation, and the cause of the fire was not known.

Finally, the third fire in The Lakes Apartments in Raleigh on Friday night was believed to have started in a bedroom. About 50 people living in 10 apartments were displaced by the fire.

One person was treated for smoke inhalation, and two firefighters were treated on the scene for minor injuries. The cause of the fire was not immediately known.
