Another fire breaks out at I& B ministry building
New Delhi: A fire broke out on the sixth floor of New Delhi’s Shastri Bhawan, which houses various ministries, on Saturday evening. This is the second time that a blaze has erupted in the building in less than a month. Four fire tenders were rushed to the spot and firefighters brought the blaze under control in half an hour. There were no casualties and no serious damage. “Prima- facie it appears that the fire started because of a short circuit but nothing can be said for sure now,” said a fire officer. Shastri Bhawan houses ministries, such as I& B, health, corporate affairs and others.
