Staff and patients at a building of Tanjung Karang Hospital this morning were evacuated after a standing fan at one of the hospital's isolation rooms caught fire.

The fire did not spread to the room, confirmed Tanjung Karang Fire and Rescue station chief Azmi Abbas.

"Based on initial findings, the fire occurred due to problems with the fan's motor. But the fire didn't involve the building's structure," he told Malaysiakini.
