Metro Gombe Federal Teaching Hospital Gutted by Fire

The Federal Teaching Hospital in Gombe was Friday morning engulfed by fire from an unknown source and lasted for about two hours.

The Chief Medial Director of the hospital, Dr. Abubakar Saidu said the fire started some minutes past 06:00 hours and was finally certified fully quenched by men of the State Fire Service at about 8:00 am, consuming the staff lounge and some offices.


“We woke up this morning and discover there was fire in the old administrative block, specifically from one of the lounges.

“It was detected by the security men who raised alarm and started using fire extinguishers to try to put out the fire.

“They were able to contain the fire that was burning the curtains and the furniture but unfortunately by that time, the fire had gone into the ceiling and then spread to two offices of our senior nurses”.
