Arson investigators are trying to find out who started a fire inside the St. Joseph Medical Center. The fire broke out around 11pm at the hospital on St. Joseph Parkway in downtown Houston. Firefighters arrived to find smoke coming from the first floor. Once patients on that floor were evacuated, crews found that a stack of sheets had been set on fire.

Arson investigators do believe the fire was intentionally set. They are talking to a person of interest.

No patients or staff was hurt in the fire.
