An electrical fire inside the Mission Viejo Medical Center forced the evacuation of several patients and staff members, authorities said. No injuries were reported. Patients and medical staff were ordered out of the medical center after a panel of electrical outlets on the first floor caught fire, county Fire Department spokeswoman Cathleen Chow said. It was not immediately known how many people were evacuated, she said, and the fire was doused within minutes, Chow said. The medical center is across the street from the Mission Viejo Community Hospital.
