Four fire engines were pressed into service which managed to douse the flames within 15 minutes, he said.

Prima facie, it appears that the fire occurred due to a short-circuit, the official said, adding that the exact cause of the blaze was yet to be ascertained.

Earlier in June 2012, a devastating fire had occurred in the secretariat, leaving five people dead and causing extensive damage to the six-storey building.
