EMERGENCY services are on the scene of a fire in the former pharmacy building at the old Royal Derwent Hospital Site. The incident was reported at 12.32pm and a heavy tanker from the New Norfolk Fire Brigade was on scene soon after.
The police and two more units from the local fire brigade arrived shortly afterwards and the small outbreak was soon contained. The building is attached to the former Ward 12, both of which have been vacant since 2001.
1.15PM UPDATE: Three units from the New Norfolk Fire Brigade are now responding to an alarm at the Millbrook Rise Hospital for Mental Health.
