BUCHAREST, Nov 14 (Reuters) - A fire killed ten people late on Saturday at the intensive care unit of a Romanian hospital that was holding coronavirus patients, the country's agency for emergency situations (ISU) said.

The fire, which has since been extinguished, broke out in a room of the intensive care unit and also affected an adjoining room. It was unclear what triggered it, officials said. (Reporting by Luiza Ilie; editing by John Stonestreet)
