Fire scare at Ho Municipal Hospital

A fire scare at the Ho Municipal hospital has reportedly sent patients and nurses running for cover, Thursday afternoon.

The main switch which exploded

The incident which was caused by the explosion of an electricity main switch at the Out-Patient Department (OPD) was quickly brought under control by one of the doctors with the use of an extinguisher.

An eyewitness told Voltaonline.com that, patients were waiting to take their turns in the consulting room, when one of the nurses detected smoke emanating from the main switch.

‘Moments later, it started exploding and people rushing out of the place, when one of the Doctors came out with the extinguisher to douse the fire’ the witness narrated.

The swift action of the doctor saved the situation even before the arrival of fire personnel from the Municipal fire station.
