Once crews were on the scene, they found smoke in the common area of the building of the Cooke wing on multiple floors.   Firefighters determined the smoke was coming from a common chase inside the hospital.  There were able to put the fire out.   The department checked the air quality and determined there were no dangerous gases or odors at any point during or after the smoke incident.  There was minimum damage to Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital, and no patients were forced to relocate.  No injuries were reported.  The all clear sign was given at 2:02pm.
