A roof fire was put out at the Bayonne Medical Center after four alarms were called in.

Some Patients were evacuated, but many were not moved due to the fast work of the Bayonne Fire Department.

Freelance news photographer Joe Shine is at the scene, and official word is expected shortly.

About 75 employees are outside on Avenue E and Broadway, Shine said.

The 278-bed hospital, part of the CarePoint Health system, is located on Avenue E from East 29th to East 30th streets. Many of the surrounding streets were closed tonight.
