MERIDIAN -- Operations at St. Luke's Meridian Medical Center are back to normal after smoke was detected coming from a communications closet in the basement this morning.
St. Luke's Hospital staff tell KTVB that workers in the hospital's basement and cafeteria were evacuated after an electrical problem tiggered a fire alarm around 6:30 a.m.
The Meridian Fire Department responded but found no fire.
Hospital spokesman Ken Dey says an electrical problem caused smoke to come from the IT control area in the basement.
Dey says no patients were evacuated, but surgeries have been postponed or rescheduled.
The cause of the smoke has not been determined. Technicians are working to fix the problem.
By 10 a.m., the smoke had been cleard from the hospital and the all clear had been given to resume operations.
