Cuttack: A fire broke out in Pathology Department of SCB Medical College and Hospital here today. Two rooms were gutted in the mishap. However, no casualty was reported.
Fire tenders have reached the spot to douse the flames. Though the exact reason behind the fire is still unknown, it is suspected that a short-circuit might have caused it.
Earlier in February this year, a fire had erupted in the main Operation Theater (OT) of surgery department at the hospital, but a firefighting team doused the flames in time, averting any casualty.
In November last year, a fire broke out in the Hepatology department of the hospital but no one was injured in the incident.
