26 patients were rescued from a fire that broke out in a hospital in west Delhi’s Vikaspuri late Tuesday night.
Delhi Fire Services director Atul Garg said that 17 patients out of all rescued were admitted due to Covid infection. “No patient or anyone else was injured in the blaze. All were rescued safely with the help of hospital staff.”
The officer said that the call about the blaze was made around 11pm from the UK Nursing Home. “We were told that it is a Covid hospital with infected patients inside. We sent eight fire tenders,” said Garg.
The fire, which allegedly broke out in a store located on the first floor of the building, was controlled by 11.45pm. The cause of the fire remains unclear.
