The fire broke out in the building adjacent to the fourth ward. Patients were completely evacuated after fire and smoke emanated. There were more than hundred patients and bystanders. The cause of the fire is not clear. There were some electric arrangements here for construction purposes. Short circuit from it may have led to the fire.

A fire had broken out in the same hospital in January. The fire broke out in the lecture hall of the gynaecology department in the afternoon. Huge damages were avoided due to the timely intervention of the security personnel and lift operator.
