Six dead in fire at Ukraine psychiatric hospital


Six people died when a fire swept through a psychiatric hospital in the Ukrainian city of Odessa, the authorities said today.

The fire erupted late on Monday evening in the one-storey building, Ukraine’s Emergency Service said in a statement. The cause was not immediately clear.

“Six people died and four have been hospitalized,” the statement said. Nine other people escaped unharmed.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he regretted the “terrible tragedy” and directed Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman to set up a committee to investigate.

“The reasons (for the fire) will be established. I present my condolences to the families of the victims,” he said on Twitter.
