Sutter hospital in Santa Rosa reopens eight days after being closed by firestorm

The smell of smoke, though faint, could still be detected Tuesday morning inside Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital as medical staff opened the doors to patients for the first time since the Tubbs fire forced the hospital to evacuate eight days ago.

Everything — the walls, floors, medical equipment, patient scheduling screens — looked spotless, as it did when the hospital opened for the first time just three years ago. (The Press Democrat)
