WAKEFIELD, The Bronx — A two-alarm fire broke out at a Bronx hospital Monday morning, FDNY officials said.

Firefighters got the call about the Montefiore North Wakefield Campus fire shortly after 8:10 a.m. and spent 45 minutes putting out the flames, fire officials said.

The fire, which broke out between the top floor and roof of the 4-story building, spurred an evacuation, but no one was injured.

Foam in the facility’s chimney ignited during a generator test, a spokeswoman for Montefiore said. There was no damage to any clinical areas and services at the outpatient facility are expected to resume tomorrow.
