I am very concerned by the fire that broke out this morning at the administration block of the Bheki Mlangeni Hospital in Soweto.

The DA calls for a full investigation into the cause of this fire, and safety precautions tightened at all hospitals as fire risks increase during winter.

Fortunately, no lives have been lost and emergency services are at the scene.

Some patients are being transferred to other hospitals.
