A small fire at Oak Ridge Nursing Home caused excitement on Thursday but very little damage.

Durant firefighters and several Bryan County EMS ambulances responded to the report of a fire around 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The incident occurred just as road conditions were deteriorating due to icy weather.

Fire Chief Roger Joines said at the scene that some small machinery had caught fire causing smoke to fill parts of the building.

He said the staff at Oak Ridge had temporarily moved some residents away from the affected area, but a full evacuation was not necessary.
