Metcalfe nursing home residents transported to Fair Oaks

Several residents from a long-term care facility in Metcalfe County were transported to Fair Oaks Nursing and Rehab in Jamestown on Saturday.

According to the Metcalfe Health Care Center, water pipes in the facility froze and broke in multiple parts of the facility, causing administrators to evacuate residents of the facility to Fair Oaks and other facilities in nearby counties.

The Jamestown Volunteer Fire Department and other agencies assisted in the transport.
