A minor fire broke out inside the residential complex of the prime minister due to a short circuit on Monday (December 30), the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said. However, his residence and office were not affected by the fire.

The fire has been brought under control, the PMO added.

“There was a minor fire at 9, Lok Kalyan Marg caused by a short circuit. This was not in PM’s residential or office area but in the SPG reception area of the LKM complex. The fire is very much under control now,” the PMO tweeted.


The Special Protection Group (SPG) is mandated to guard the prime minister. The Prime Minister resides at 7 Lok Kalyan Marg. His residential complex also has an office of the SPG where the fire broke out.
