Fire broke out at the Chicago Avenue Food and Deli about 3 a.m. Thursday. Fire officials say the hospital was forced to close its intake and ventilation system because of the wafting smoke.

Children's temporarily closed its outpatient clinics and delayed elective surgery, radiology and lab services. Hospital spokesman Justin Theodotou (thee-oh-DOH'-too) tells the Star Tribune no patients or staff were harmed.

Firefighters had the fire under control by about 7 a.m.
