Senior Center Evacuated Because of Fire

Yesterday afternoon, a senior center in Dallas caught fire. Around 110 people, seniors and staff, had to be evacuated from the building. No one required immediate hospitalization, but smoke can cause serious damage to people's lungs, especially those that are elderly, sick, or with weak immune systems.

Bentley Manor Assisted Living Center was saved with help of firefighters and Good Samaritans alike. Some of the people who saw the fire went in and crawled through under the smoke to help evacuate people.

The cause of the fire has not been determined. Also, it has not been calculated how much the damage the fire caused.

The fire may have been an accident, or it could have been caused by negligence. It is also possible that there was a product defect in something that caused or contributed to the blaze.

If anyone was seriously hurt in the fire, it is recommended that he or she contact a Dallas Personal Injury Attorney who will investigate the case.
