The Namibian Defence Force hospital situated in Windhoek’s Suiderhof residential area was destroyed in a fire that burned for hours on Sunday while the City of Windhoek’s Fire and Rescue Services fought to extinguish the flames. Defence Minister Frans Kapofi told the Namibia press agency that the cause of the fire was still unknown as investigations were ongoing. He however confirmed that although the entire building was destroyed by the fire, no one was hurt and that the one patient who had been admitted to the hospital at the time of the blaze has been safely moved.
