Plateau: Fire Guts Hospital, Property Worth Millions Destroyed

A fire outbreak has razed down the Laboratory section of the Plateau State Specialist hospital in Jos.

Although no life was lost, the source of the fire, was reportedly first noticed on Tuesday, even though the cause is unknown.

A staff of the hospital who spoke to our correspondent said the fire outbreak destroyed several medical apparatus, office appliances and equipment valued at millions of naira.

"The incident led to commotion among patients hospitalized in the hospital, but we thank God no life was lost.

"The equipment that are destroyed by this fire are worth millions; it is huge" he stressed.

It could be recalled that the Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong recently renovated the Plateau State Specialist hospital.

Efforts to reach the Chief Medical Director of the Hospital at the time of sending this report were abortive.
