'Scrubs' Hospital Damaged in Fire

7/19/2011 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The hospital made famous on "Scrubs" nearly suffered the same fate as the sitcom ... when flames ripped through the North Hollywood Medical Center -- but unlike the show the building was saved.

According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, the blaze at the North Hollywood Medical Center was put down in just 23 minutes, and no one was hurt.

The hospital is closed to the public... and is now primarily used as a filming location.

So far, no official cause of the fire.

This really isn't news as they are tearing the building down anyway. There isn't much left right now except the frame of the building. You can see right thru the building at this point.

JLo was practicing for her gig in the Ukraine in front of hundreds of drunken Ukrainians when suddenly her jiggling butt ignited their vodka and the whole place went up in flames.

I was just about to say. The building is practically gone anyways. They were already tearing it down a fire would have just leveled it off faster. Sorry TMZ but this isn't news.

TMZ failed to mention in the story that authorities found Charlie and Brooke in the basement setting up a meth lab.

Guys, srsly, y'all need to start reading between the lines. It was so obvious.

I bet Dr. Kelso paid the Janitor to start the fire so Sacred Heart could clean up on the insurance settlement!

The building is half torn down. They probably caught it on fire while they were cutting the beams in the demolition. It was totally gutted for the last mont or more.

My ex wife used to work there over 30 years ago when she was in high school and I drive by there almost daily. I don't know anything about it being torn down, but I know they use it for movie/tv shoots, etc.

As someone mentioned before its currently used to shoot the show Children's Hospital which airs on Cartoon Network. I am assuming this will put the show on hiatus for awhile.

Brooke: "Chaarrrllliieee... green hose goes where?"

Charlie: "Honey, you're doing it wrong. Here, take a hit of this pipe."

(Brooke takes a huge hit)

Charlie: "Ok, now stay there and be quiet while I mix in the paint thinner."
