Ludhiana, August 21
A minor fire broke out at the Civil Hospital due to short circuit here this morning. Doctors and hospital staff managed to douse the flames within half an hour with the help of fire extinguishers.
Even the Fire Department was not informed about the incident as the hospital staff itself doused the flames.
According to information from the Civil Hospital, the fire broke out due to short circuit around 8:35 am today.
Surgeons Dr Varun Saggar and Dr Milan Verma, who were on round, controlled the flames with the help of fire extinguishers. The duo saw the smoke on the first floor. However, they noticed no fire in the electricity duct on the first floor. The doctors then rushed to the ground floor and doused the flames.
Sources said several persons were standing there as a mute spectator and some of them were just clicking pictures.
The OPD block was evacuated as a precautionary measure. It was made functional after the fire was brought under control.
