New Delhi, Jan 8: A massive fire broke out at state-run BRD hospital in Gorakhpur on Monday. Three fire tenders were rushed to spot to control the blaze that caused extensive damage to the principal’s office and the adjacent record room situated in the hospital premises.
The cause of the fire is yet to be known. However, no loss of life has been reported so far.
Last year in August, the BRD medical college had hit the headlines when 63 children, including infants, died within a span of four days after the supply of oxygen was allegedly disrupted due to non-payment of dues to the vendor.
Earlier in the day, five people charred to death after a major fire broke out at Kailash Bar and Restaurant in Bengaluru in the wee hours of Monday. The bar-cum-restaurant is located in the ground floor of Kumbaara Sangha building, near a vegetable market.
