Fire Burns At Hospital in Russia, 38 Dead

Posted: Updated:
Moscow, Russia -

At least 38 people have been killed in a fire at a psychiatric hospital outside Moscow. 

The fire trapped patients inside behind barred windows.


The deadly blaze raised new questions about security standards at Russia's medical institutions, in particular psychiatric hospitals, after a string of fires in the last several years.

The fire broke out on the roof and spread rapidly throughout the hospital in the small town of Ramensky around 25 miles outside Moscow, the health ministry said.
