Katni (MP): Eight new-born babies were on Sunday
safely rescued from the district hospital`s children intensive
care unit after a fire broke out here following a technical
snag in the air conditioner, officials said.

The fire broke out after electricity supply resumed
after load-shedding around 2.30 pm, they said adding that
the alert doctors and staff quickly evacuated the eight
new born babies below one week of age from the unit.

The babies have been shifted to another intensive care
unit, officials said.

The intensive care unit in-charge Doctor Sobhit Choudha
said that an inquiry has been ordered into the incident.
