Traffic was held up on 100th Ave today as Fort St. John Firefighters responded to a fire inside the Fort St. John General Hospital.

Shortly after 2pm today, workers were using a grinder while doing some work at the Fort St. John General Hospital when one of the sparks from the grinder went down a pipe into the hospital’s linen room, where it set a small fire. Luckily, the fire was quickly extinguished by fire crews.

The Fire Department has not yet released a statement on the matter.
