Mechanical issues were the cause of two smoky incidents reported at a Bowling Green State University residence hall and a Bowling Green nursing home Wednesday.
At 5:35 a.m. Bowling Green firefighters were called to the MacDonald Residence Hall, 707 Ridge Street, after a fire alarm went off.
Students in the building were evacuated.
Upon arriving on-scene, fire personnel found no fire. However, light smoke was found in a mechanical room on the building's northeast side and a thermal imaging camera showed an overheated motor in one of the air handlers.
The room was aired out, and the issue was left in the hands of maintenance personnel just after 6 a.m.
Fire crews were additionally called to the Bowling Green Manor nursing home, 1021 W. Poe Road, at 12:52 p.m. after the report of smoke in a hallway.
Firefighters found a faint haze and a smoke odor in the hallway of the building's D-wing, but no heat or smoke were found in any of the residential rooms, and residents were isolated in their rooms for safety.
Upon investigation, a heating system was found to be the culprit after smoke was discovered coming out of a ceiling vent.
The matter was left in the hands of maintenance personnel.
Crews remained on-scene until 2:35 p.m.
