A fire started in the hospital room of a patient using oxygen, quickly rupturing the oxygen hoses attached to the piped oxygen wall outlets. The free-flowing oxygen then intensified the fire, which rapidly involved most of the flammable objects in the room. Copious amounts of smoke were forced out into the hall and throughout the patient floor, necessitating the evacuation of many patients. When the firefighters arrived, they shut off the oxygen to the room, which reduced the intensity of the fire and enabled them to extinguish it.
