There were no people inside that room, as the building of the Center is independent and separate from the main building of the hospital, where the inpatient sections are,” he said.

Then, the measures of Emergency and Crisis Management Department at Makkah Health Affairs Directorate have been declared effective, and the Civil Defense has been notified, which has responded to the incident immediately. After that, the fire has been controlled without causing any injuries, May Allah be praised. Only the content of the room has been damaged, however the hospital is still providing its medical services.”
Makkah Health Affairs General Directorate would like to extend sincere thanks and gratitude to Makkah Civil Defense officers; for their quick response and great efforts in facing the incident.
