South Korean Hospital Fire Leaves Scores Dead

The least of 37 people have been killed and over 70 injured in a deadly fire at a hospital in South Korea.





The fire is speculated to have started in the emergency room at Sejong Hospital in the south-eastern city of Miryang. About 200 patients were inside the building and an adjoining nursing home at the time.

Described as South Korea's deadliest fire in almost a decade, the death toll is expected to rise with several of the injured in critical condition.

Firefighters said it seemed most victims died from smoke inhalation. Three hospital medical staff - a doctor, nurse and nursing assistant - are among the victims.

The hospital was specialised in caring for elderly people with long-term needs, as well as other patients, reports suggest many patients would have been too ill or old to escape alone.

Fire chief Choi Man-woo told reporters the cause of the fire was not yet known.
