An electrical fire at Canberra Hospital in Fyshwick, ACT, has sparked political fallout after patients were evacuated and surgeries were postponed, according to an article on the Canberra Times website. Some are blaming the ACT government for the emergency.
Hospital staff moved 60 patients when smoke spilled into its buildings and power to some areas was cut off.
Emergency services and utilities worked through the night to restore power to the hospital's main patient and administrative areas.
Shadow health minister Vicki Dunne blamed the ACT government's neglect of the territory's health system for Wednesday's fire at Canberra Hospital.
