9 Patients lost their lives in a hospital fire in Rasht, Northern Iran


Chief of the Gilan University of Medical Sciences, Muhammad Taghi Ashoubi, informed reporters on Tuesday that eight more patients had died earlier and that one intubated patient in the intensive care unit had passed away. Gilan Medical Examiner is looking into these patients' cause of death. Upon their transfer to the 17 Shahrivar Children's Hospital, five healthy infants from Qaem Hospital were reported, according to him. 

The hospital's emergency power generators were housed in a chamber on an underground floor, which is where the fire originated.
Unverified rumours that the fire started as a result of the widespread use of emergency power generators during blackouts amid Iran's intense summer heat have not received a response from the authorities.
The cause of the fire, which is thought to have begun at around 1:30 am, is currently being looked into.

The province's authorities and the interior minister, Ahmad Vahidi, have been consulted over the injured, the hospital's safe resumption of operations, and the investigation of the fire's origin.
Twelve teams totalling seventy-five emergency responders were sent to the hospital from eight counties, according to Hadi Salimi, the provincial chairman of the Red Crescent Society.

33 out of the 142 patients receiving care at the 250-bed facility were in critical condition at the time of the event. Several medical facilities in the vicinity needed to receive dozens of patients.
