A fire broke out at Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited’s (BSNL) office building at Bajrakabati area in Odisha’s Cuttack city on Friday.

All employees were evacuated from the premises of the building after thick smoke billowed from it, the official said.
Several documents and equipment were destroyed in the blaze, he said, adding that the fire spread rapidly due to the presence of cables and wires in the office.
