At first, fire broke out at the car parking area of the international airport. Fire engines rushed to the area and after a tough fight for long time, fire brigade officials succeeded to extinguish the flames.
Eyewitnesses said that the fire might have gulped a large portion of the airport if the fire brigade engines would not have reached the place at the right time. It has been reported that an over-heated battery blasted and a car, which is used to ferry airline staff, caught fire.
Meanwhile, a neon name-board of a private hotel outside the airport caught fire following short-circuit. However, sources informed that situations are under control now.
