It added that it is accepting donations in kind and in cash.

The UP OSR also said PGH is asking for industrial fans to help drive out smoke caused by the fire, as well as oxygen tanks.

The hospital is also requesting for linen sheets, it said.

The fire broke out at the room where linen are kept beside the hospital’s operating room.

PGH spokesperson Dr. Jonas Del Rosario said the hospital’s emergency room will be closed for the day and no admissions will be accommodated for the meantime.

Some patients were brought to other hospitals, while others were accommodated in other parts of PGH.
