A fire has broken out inside Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's residential-office complex, located at Lok Kalyan Marg (formerly known as Race Course Road) in New Delhi.
The fire department received the call at 07:25 pm. Nine fire tenders were rushed to the spot, which were able to douse the blaze by 07:55 pm. The source of the fire was an inverter.
There are no reports of any injuries or property damage so far.
"There was a minor fire at 9, Lok Kalyan Marg caused by a short circuit. This was not in PM’s residential or office area but in the SPG reception area of the LKM complex," PM Office's official Twitter handle tweeted.
"The fire is very much under control now," it said.
PM's residence-cum-office and security spread across five bungalows 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9, including 5, Lok Kalyan Marg, the Private Residential Zone for the Prime Minister, though he operates from 7, Lok Kalyan Marg.
