New Delhi: Several government documents were destroyed when a fire broke out in the Border Security Force’s (BSF) office here on Tuesday, said authorities. No one injured.

The fire was reported at 12:17 PM on the first-floor office of the BSF headquarters in the fourth Block of the Central Government Offices complex on Lodhi Road in New Delhi area.

Fire officials took about 45 minutes to douse the flames erupting in the documentation section, which also has the offices of air wing and communications department of the BSF.

The official said the building does not house the office of the Director General of the BSF.
