HEALTH FIRE small

The Sault Tribe Health Center at 2864 Ashmun St. was evacuated for over an hour on Tuesday, May 10, after a fire alarm was triggered shortly before 12:30 p.m. Interim Fire Chief Kevin Mohar of the Sault Ste. Marie Fire Department said a heating and cooling issue prompted the alarm. Firefighters noted minimal smoke and cosmetic damage to a small area inside the structure allowing staff to return at 1:36 p.m. In addition to three fire trucks and three ambulances, Sault Tribe Law Enforcement and Sault Police Department responded to the scene to assist with traffic control and congestion along the nearby street. The health center resumed operations upon clearance from emergency responders with staff running a bit behind schedule and playing catch-up for the remainder of the day.
