The fire was noticed at 8:30 am by CISF personnel, who are manning the security of this vital establishment.

In a major fire, the backup office of 'Go Air' airlines at the Dabolim airport was gutted on Friday morning, officials said.

The fire was noticed at 8:30 am by Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel, who are manning the security of this vital establishment, airport officials said.

There were no reports of any casualty due to the fire.

Fire tenders from Goa State Fire and Emergency Services, Mormugao Port Trust and Indian Navy have managed to control the blaze within one-and-half hours, officials said.

"Seven fire tenders were used to control the fire," officials said, adding the flight operations will not be hindered as Go Air airline's backoffice and not the ticketing counter was affected due to the blaze.

"We are ascertaining the reason behind the blaze," Ashok Menon, Director, Goa State Fire and Emergency Services, said.

Fire services sources confirmed that the fire safety certification, mandatory for this vital establishment run by Indian Navy, was not acquired.
