A fire broke out at a hospital in southern Moscow early Friday, killing at least four patients and forcing the evacuation of dozens of other patients, an emergency official said. The blaze broke out around 5 a.m. (0200 GMT) in the multistory, main campus of the Seventh Clinical Hospital, said Veronika Smolskaya, a spokeswoman for the Emergency Situations Ministry. She said four patients were killed in the blaze, and 97 patients had to be evacuated in the cold, early morning hours to other buildings in the complex. It wasn't immediately clear if the deaths were caused by fire or smoke inhalation, Smolskaya said.
