5 Pinay nurses hurt in Saudi hospital fire

RIYADH, Saudi - A blaze swept through a nurses residence at a military hospital in Riyadh Saturday "slightly injuring" seven South African and five Filipino nurses, a Civil Defense spokesman said.

The cause of the fire, which broke out before dawn, did not appear to be criminal, the spokesman told the official Saudi Press Agency. Investigations are still ongoing.

In September, 69 common law prisoners perished in a fire at the kingdom's biggest jail in the Saudi capital.
