JOHOR BARU: The Sul­tanah Ami­nah Hos­pi­tal here was yes­ter­day evac­u­ated again af­ter an­other fire broke out. The in­ci­dent came a day af­ter a fire killed six peo­ple in the hos­pi­tal’s in­ten­sive care unit.

Panic-stricken pa­tients and staff rushed out when smoke filled the hos­pi­tal’s op­er­at­ing t heatre yes­ter­day af­ter­noon, much like on Tues­day.

The sec­ond fire is be­lieved to have re­sulted from an elec­tri­cal short cir­cuit caused by wa­ter used in putting out the fire the pre­vi­ous day.

Med­i­cal staff help a fire­man wheel a pa­tient to safety af­ter an­other fire at Sul­tanah Ami­nah Hos­pi­tal yes­ter­day
