A fire at Bayonet Point Hospital has led to the evacuation of over 200 patients. The fire was completely extinguished within minutes, but power had to be cut to the building to fight the blaze. We are told the entire hospital has been evacuated, and over 40 ambulances and special operations (Sunstar) buses were required…Some coming from as far away as Kissimmee. I was told the total number evacuated was 290, but it is not clear if that number includes employees, or just patients.
