Taiwan hospital fire forces patients out on streets

Hundreds of people were evacuated from a hospital in New Taipei City in Taiwan on Monday after a fire broke out in the building's MRI room, forcing sick patients to take to the streets.

The incident came less than a month after a fire at another Taiwanese hospital which left 12 people dead.
