Occupants of the building were safely evacuated and no casualties were reported in the incident, according to The Indian Express reported. The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
This is the second time in two years that a fire has broken out in The Times of India building in Delhi. In May 2016, a major fire engulfed the building's fourth floor as a result of a short circuit in the press conference room, making it necessary to evacuate the building. No casualties were reported in the incident.
