Elective surgeries cancelled at Carbonear hospital
Elective surgeries at Carbonear General Hospital have been cancelled for Wednesday, due to an electrical fire in the hospital's fourth floor mechanical room.
Eastern Health said Tuesday's fire was quickly extinguished, and no one was injured.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. But the health authority said it was likely caused by power fluctuations related to Tuesday's severe weather.
As a result of the equipment damage caused by the fire, surgery services at Carbonear General Hospital have been limited to emergencies only for Wednesday.
Eastern Health said normal operations are expected to resume on Thursday.
