Fire breaks out at PMO

Fire breaks out at PMO Fire breaks out at PMO

A fire reportedly broke out in the Indian Prime Minister's Office (PMO) in the early hours of Tuesday (October 17). There were no reports of any injuries.

According to The Indian Express, a similar fire had occurred previous year at the South Block in a conference room on the upper ground floor of the PMO. However, no casualties were reported as fire tenders reached the spot immediately and doused the fire in 20 minutes. The fire broke out at around 3.30 am at room number 242 located on the second flood of the PMO. The cause of fire was suspected to be a short-circuit and further probe is underway, an official had said. Recently, the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal office at the Lok Nayak Bhawan had caught fire and it seemed that a short circuit in the air-conditioning unit of the compressor in the cafeteria could have caused the accident. More details were awaited at the time of writing this news. The South Block, situated on the Raisina Hill in close proximity to the Parliament and Rashtrapati Bhavan, also houses other crucial government offices like those of the ministries of defence and external affairs, the national security adviser and the cabinet secretary.

A similar incident had occurred in 2014 when a fire had broken out in a room in the PMO.
