Major fire at Delhi international airport


In a major blaze at New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport's cargo section, property worth millions was gutted. However, no one was injured in the fire that broke out around midnight at the Celebi office, which is the ground handling services company that manages cargo operations at IGI airport, according to sources.

The fire had spread as it took about 30 minutes for the fire brigade officials to reach the spot. It took more than four hours and 33 fire tenders to contain the blaze, officials told the media.

The first floor of the cargo building was completely gutted. The offices of major airlines such as Air India, Gulf Air, Thai Air and Aeroflot have been gutted in the fire.

The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.
