“The fire tenders were pressed into service and when the fire control personnel reached the spot, they found the upper story and a Chinar tree in flames,” a fire and emergency services officer said.

The blaze was severe but there was no loss of life in the incident, he added.

The building served as a sub-jail for 34 political leaders of Kashmir, who were arrested in 2019 following the revocation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status under Article 370.

The official said the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.
