A fire broke out early Wednesday at the Pakistani hospital where former military ruler Pervez Musharraf was admitted for a heart condition, officials said.Musharraf's lawyer Ahmad Raza Kasuri said that the former president was not affected.The court has ordered Musharraf to appear in person on Thursday, after considering a medical report on his heart complaint.Musharraf's camp says the treason allegations, which relate to his imposition of emergency rule in November 2007, are politically motivated, and his lawyers have challenged the authority of the tribunal.But the former commando has said he wants to stay and fight the charges.
