A fire has broken out on the first and second floor at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on Saturday evening. 34 fire tenders have rushed to the AIIMS hospital to douse the fire. The fire started at a building near the Emergency Ward of the hospital. According to media reports, fire was caused due to a short circuit.
There are no reports of any casualty so far. The fire broke out at the teaching block of the AIIMS, destroying samples and medical reports and forcing evacuation of some patients, though no one was injured. Former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is undergoing treatment at the AIIMS hospital, but he is admitted in a different building. Dark plumes of smoke were seen billowing out from top of the premier health institute.
