200 people evacuated – fire in hospital near Rome claimed lives

At least three people have been killed in a fire at a hospital in Tivoli, Italy. Two others were seriously injured. The Public Prosecution Service has now opened an investigation into the cause of the fire.

According to emergency services, the fire broke out on the second floor of the hospital. From there, the flames are said to have reached the emergency room and intensive care unit. Other departments were not affected, the report said. However, the thick smoke permeated the entire hospital and had to be evacuated. The entire energy system collapsed. More than 200 patients, including seven children, were evacuated. The seriously injured were taken to other hospitals in the area, while the slightly injured were temporarily housed in a nearby municipal sports hall. They will later be transferred to other facilities.
