At least 10 dead in a fire at a Brazilian hospital



The death toll in a hospital in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro rose to at least ten yesterday evening, fire officials said Friday.

A fire broke out at Badim Hospital in northern Rio around 6.30am local time (11.30pm CET), and TV footage showed evacuated patients lying in their beds on the street, surrounded by nurses and doctors.



The cause of the fire appears to be a short circuit.

The hospital said 103 patients were hospitalized at the time of the outbreak, and firefighters said at least 90 were transferred to other hospitals.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire in about two hours, Globo News reported. Four firefighters were injured during the firefight.
