Malaysia's largest public hospital in fire

A fire broke out in the forensics department of Malaysia's largest public hospital on Saturday, forcing an evacuation of patients, staff and visitors.

Hospital authorities said fire fighters put out the blaze, which broke out at around 12.15pm at a storage room of the National Institute of Forensic Medicine, before it was able to spread. No casualties were reported.

"The Fire and Rescue Department was alerted and the fire was brought under control before it could spread," hospital director Dr Nor Akma Yusuf said in a statement. She said that services at the hospital were not affected.
