Four people died in a fire in a psychiatric hospital in eastern Ukraine, local police said Monday.
Police said the fire broke out overnight in a ward at the Starobilsk hospital in the region of Luhansk. It wasn't immediately clear what caused the blaze.
Firemen battled the flames for two hours, while police and the hospital's medical personnel evacuated people.
Aside from those who died, three people have sustained injuries.
An investigation into what caused the fire has begun.
The health minister said the blaze may have been caused by a defective anti-mosquito device. The national emergency service said in a statement that the fire was under control but not yet extinguished.
Thirty-six others were injured, some of them critically, in a blaze that sent people scrambling up the stairs toward the roof in a desperate — and futile — attempt to escape.
