A minor electrical fire forced the brief evacuation of residents and staff at DaVita Victoria Dialysis Center early Friday morning.

About 4:30 a.m., the Victoria Fire Department responded to the call at 1405 Victoria Station Road.

"The problem was isolated to one electrical outlet," said VFD Battalion Chief Bubba Bayer. "When we arrived, the staff had already begun moving the residents outside."

Those evacuated were able to return to the building in less than 30 minutes, Bayer said.

There were no injuries reported.
