MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Residents at a Lauderdale Lakes assisted living facility had to be moved to nearby hospitals after their home suffered a partial loss of power on Friday night.

Multiple Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire Rescue units responded to the nursing home, located in the 3300 block of Northwest 47 Terrace, after authorities said a power pole fire caused the power loss.

BSO said 20 patients had to be relocated.

Many of the residents were moved to the area of the home that still had power and air conditioning, BSO said.

As of 11 p.m., authorities said power had been restored to the facility.
