ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - In a story July 7 about a fire at the University of Michigan Health System’s cardiovascular center, The Associated Press, relying on information from The Ann Arbor News, misidentified the agency that is investigating the fire. The investigating agency is the Michigan Bureau of Fire Services, not the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Documents detail fire that injured health system patient

Documents detail fire at U-M health system’s cardiovascular center that injured patient

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Documents say a fire at the University of Michigan Health System’s cardiovascular center in Ann Arbor that injured a patient started during a medical procedure.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1Ck004a ) the June 22 fire spread to a curtain during a procedure to restore a normal heart rhythm. The newspaper used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain a report about the fire from the Ann Arbor Fire Department.

The department’s report says hospital employees put out the fire and the university’s department of Occupational Safety and Environmental Health was notified.

Seven staff members also were evaluated. Details of what happened haven’t been released by the health system or university police.

The Michigan Bureau of Fire Services is investigating and the patient was listed in good condition Monday.
