The Nizamiye Hospital, Abuja says it experienced a minor fire outbreak on Friday.

The outbreak was said to have occurred as a result of the malfunctioning of a conversion box installed on an industrial water heater unit on the topmost floor of the building.

In a statement, Mohammed Abubakar, public relations officer of the hospital, said the building was immediately evacuated as a precautionary measure.

Abubakar said the fire was contained by a water sprinkler and “other fire extinguishing gadgets installed at strategic places in the hospital building.”

“The Management of Nizamiye Hospital Abuja wishes to bring to the notice of the general public of a minor incident that affected the operations of the Hospital today, 27th December 2019,” he said.

“The incident was caused by the malfunctioning of a conversion box installed in the industrial water heater unit on the topmost floor of the hospital building.

“As a result, there was a minor fire outbreak which necessitated the total evacuation of staff and patients from the hospital building as a precautionary measure. There were no casualties of any form recorded during the evacuation process.

“The Hospital Management, as a result of this, wishes to inform members of the general public that medical services have been effectively restored, and routine services would be open to the general public on 28th December 2019 from 9 am.

“The management of the Hospital wishes to thank the Director-General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) for his timely intervention led by the Director, Search and Rescue Operations, Air Commodore Akugbe Iyanmu.”
