Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

A blaze that erupted at the Chest Hospi­tal in Sabah health zone was brought un­der con­trol yes­ter­day. Crews be­long­ing to Kuwait’s Fire Ser­vice Direc­torate (KFSD) re­sponded to the fire that gut­ted Al-Sadri Hospi­tal and brought it un­der con­trol with no ca­su­al­ties re­ported, KFSD an­nounced.

Kuwait’s new Health Min­is­ter Ja­mal AlHarbi along with KFSD Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Lt. Gen. Khalid Al-Mikrad vis­ited the scene of the fire.

The Min­istry of Health (MoH) noted that the blaze which erupted in a di­lap­i­dated build­ing, was the re­sult of an elec­tri­cal short cir­cuit, ad­ding that the in­ci­dent was dealt with in a timely man­ner which pre­vented the fire from spread­ing out of con­trol. Fire­men evac­u­ated the build­ing and iso­lated the ICU to pre­vent the fire from spread­ing and harm­ing pa­tients.
