A fire that broke out in the office of the External Affairs Ministry in New Delhi late on Monday evening was quickly doused and there were no casualties, authorities said.

Four fire tenders were rushed after a call was received from the ministry in the South Block in the high-security zone of the capital at 9.55 pm.

The fire was caused by an electrical spark in a computer, officials said.
