New Delhi: Metro train services on the Magenta Line were halted temporarily after a fire broke out at a furniture market near the Kalindi Kunj metro station on Friday morning.

No casualty or injury has been reported until now. Fifteen fire tenders have been rushed to the spot to douse the massive blaze. However, some media reports state that around 17 firefighters have been rushed to the spot.
