Bhopal/UNI/IBNS: The toll due to a fire in the Special Newborn Care Unit (SNCU) on the third floor of the government-run Kamla Nehru Hospital here has risen to four while 36 other infants are undergoing treatment after being evacuated, hospital sources said on Tuesday.

A short circuit in the ventilator caused the blaze at about 9 pm on Monday.

Equipment got burnt and smoke spread within the SNCU.

Doctors, nurses and others brought the patients out.

The deceased children were a day to nine days old.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said the incident was "very sad".

"A number of children died yesterday due to an unfortunate incident of fire at Bhopal's Kamla Nehru Hospital. The incident has saddened my soul. I have ordered a probe into the incident. The guilty in this criminal negligence will not be spared," tweeted Chouhan.
