DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (AP) - About 100 residents of a South Florida rehabilitation facility were forced to evacuate after a small fire broke out.

Broward Sheriff Fire-Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles said the fire started Sunday morning in an air conditioning unit at the Deerfield Beach Health & Rehabilitation Center.

The Sun Sentinel (https://tinyurl.com/q4w429c) reports the fire was quickly extinguished and the residents were allowed back in the building about two hours later after officials tested the air quality.

No injuries were reported.
