A Whitby hospital evacuated earlier this week following a fire in the building’s basement could remain closed for at least one month, a preliminary assessment of the damage showed yesterday.

 




A fire in Lakeridge Health Whitby’s electrical room sent smoke billowing throughout the building, forcing the evacuation of 71 patients — many of whom were carried down the stairs one by one — around 6:20 p.m. on Monday. While the alarm system should be up shortly, the electrical system “will take some time” to fix.
