FirstHealth spokesperson Emily Sloan confirmed that there was a small grease fire in the kitchen but hospital staff members were able to extinguish it before crews arrived.

She added that there were no injuries or damage caused by the fire.

“We appreciate the fire department’s quick response,” she said.
