It was confined to the ground floor area of the lounge in the one-storied structure, and destroyed electric wiring and installations, wooden furniture, partitions and the false ceiling, besides decorative material.

Eight fire tenders and other equipment were used to douse the flames and, finally, according to a MIAL official, "the matter was under control."
