New Delhi: A fire has broken out in central Delhi’s Shastri Bhawan.

According to reports, five fire tenders have been rushed to deal with the blaze which broke out early on Monday. Police told PTI that the fire broke out after a short circuit in an air conditioner.

The fire, which broke out on the seventh floor, was doused within a few minutes and five fire tenders were rushed to the spot, police added. In 2014, a fire broke out on the same floor.
