Fire at JMCH; Narrow escape for 26 babies


Twenty-six new born babies had a miraculous escape Tuesday when a devastating fire broke out in the Jorhat Medical College.


The incident took place in the wee hours at the special care unit. Patients and attendants in the hospital raised an alarm and the babies were immediately shifted to a separate ward. The fire broke out due to short circuit in a machine in the radial warmer unit.


Principal of Jorhat Medical College and Hospital Dr Dhurbajyoti Borah has ordered an inquiry into the incident.
