JOHANNESBURG - The Gauteng Health Department said that a fire at the Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital has been brought under control.

The blaze broke out on Tuesday in the unused P2 parking bay.

The hospital is still reeling from an inferno that gutted parts of the hospital, including the trauma unit last year.
