ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - In a story July 2 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:

State investigates fire that injured health system patient

State investigates fire at U-M health system’s cardiovascular center that injured patient

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Bureau of Fire Services has launched an investigation to determine the circumstances surrounding a fire in a procedure room of the University of Michigan Health System’s cardiovascular center in Ann Arbor.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1HxYrQD ) the June 22 fire left a patient injured and seven staff members were evaluated. Details of what happened haven’t been released by the health system, university police or the Ann Arbor fire department.

Health system spokeswoman Mary Masson says “it would not be appropriate to speculate” about what happened until an investigation is complete.

The state says Michigan’s Fire Marshal Richard Miller is heading MBFS’s investigation. The newspaper says the patient remains hospitalized.
