This Day in Norwood History-October 28, 1947-9 Nurses Flee Norwood Fire Near Hospital

NORWOOD, Oct. 28 — Nine nurses were forced to flee from the Norwood Hospital Nurses Home at 5:25 tonight when a fire started on the first floor of the two-and-a-half-story wooden building. The home is attached to the hospital but the 300 patients were not disturbed.

Flames were discovered in the walls of the first floor, directly over the boiler, according to Fire Chief Alonzo Earle, who estimated damage at $1000.

The fire was discovered by several nurses who alerted the hospital and fire department. Off duty nurses, who were dining in the hospital basement, rushed to the various wards to care for patients. All nurses will spend the night in the hospital.
