The staff inside the block ran out of the block after flames and thick smoke emanated from the building. The police and firefighters were alerted who rushed to the spot and took up measures to control the fire.
Though the fire was brought under control, chairs, tables, a projector in the AB1 block were gutted. The loss of property is yet to be ascertained.
