Here is an example of fire crews tackling a fire at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro due to a non-fire retardant bin being unable to contain a fire. Flames started in rubbish bins in one of the hospital's wings but luckily it was contained by fire doors and the building was not evacuated. Aside from corridors being heavily smoke-logged and a member of staff suffering an asthma attack, things could have been much worse.
