“We treat all long-term care facility fires seriously, which have special provisions regarding fire safety,” said Dryden Fire Service Chief, Ryan Murrell.
“Staff at Princess Court did a remarkable job of extinguishing this fire, and followed their fire safety plan to ensure safety of these individuals inside.” said Fire Chief Ryan Murrell.
