BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- Fire crews responded to South Buffalo Mercy Hospital Friday morning after reports of heavy smoke on the building's 5th floor.

The hospital was forced to evacuate a portion of the building's 5th floor office space, and no patients were disturbed.

Fire officials traced the source of the smoke to a burned-out fan motor located on that floor.
