The flames of last night's fire at the Tivoli hospital started from the outside at the back of the structure, involving the stored waste. The flames then spread to the basement to the emergency room, with smoke invading the hospital. "We have acquired numerous images from the video surveillance system, from which we have a clear picture of what happened and through which at the moment we can rule out maliciousness," said the prosecutor of Tivoli, Francesco Menditto.
The Public Prosecutor's Office of Tivoli has opened a file against unknown persons for multiple manslaughter and negligent arson. Areas of the hospital were also seized for investigation. An autopsy has been ordered for the three victims and a coroner and toxicologist have been appointed.
Of the three people who died, one was in emergency medicine and two in general practice.
