About 40 firefighters tackled the blaze. Visitors to wards 4,5 and 7 are being asked to stay away, while the hospital's accident and emergency department is running a reduced service. Fire service group manager Neil Boustred said: "Crews tackled the fire within very hot, arduous conditions, confining it to the area of origin, while assisting the hospital staff to evacuate patients." Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust said: "We have been contacting patients' relatives throughout the morning and ask that, where possible, visitors to the wards affected refrain from coming to the hospital at this point.
