Dozens Killed in Fire at Moscow Psychiatric Hospital

ANDREY SMIRNOV/AFP/Getty Images(MOSCOW) -- At least 38 people died overnight in Moscow after a fire swept through a psychiatric hospital.

The one-story building housed patients with severe mental disorders.

An emergency official says the fire started in a wooden annex and then spread to the main brick building, which had wooden beams.

Only three people managed to escape the blaze.
