Hyderabad: Fire breaks out at new secretariat building

Hyderabad: A small fire broke out here at the under-construction new secretariat building at around 2 am on Friday morning.

The workers at the under-construction building noticed smoke billowing from the main complex, upon which some fire tenders were rushed to the spot. Police teams also swung into action to bring the situation under control.

The fire was doused within a short time, and officials said that the flames were likely to be caused due to a short circuit at an AC vent. The flames were brought under control after efforts of five hours. ”We are ascertaining the actual reasons of the fire accident,“ said District fire officer Srinivas Reddy.
