Small fire at hospital

Hospital workers manage to quash flames

There was a small fire at Noble's Hospital this morning.

Crews from Douglas Fire Station responded at 8.20am when the hospital alarm system sounded.

Hospital workers had already tackled the incident in a light fitting using extinguishers.

Crews had to deal with smoke logging and used a thermal imaging camera to confirm the fire was out.

The incident lasted about 40 minutes when staff and the public were allowed back in to the area after a safety check.
