One woman was taken to the hospital following a fire Tuesday afternoon at a senior high rise in Ross Township. A kitchen fire forced the evacuation of three floors at Town North Tower on Corbett Court, just off of McKnight Road, around 4:30 p.m. The fire was brought under control and residents were being allowed to go back inside around 5:30 p.m. The fire started on the fifth floor, prompting the evacuation of that floor along with the fourth and sixth as a precaution. The woman who lives in the apartment where the fire broke out was taken to the hospital, but she is expected to be fine.
