A nursing home had to be evacuated early Thursday morning in Pinellas Park due to a structure fire.

Bayside Terrace, an assisted living and retirement community in Pinellas Park, was evacuated before the first fire unit got on scene. The nursing home is located at 9381 US Hwy 19 N. 

Only part of the building had to be evacuated as a precaution due to smoke odor on the second floor. Residents in that part of the building evacuated to lobby. 



No injuries have been reported.
