New Delhi: A fire broke out inside the Parliament premises on Wednesday morning. According to the Delhi fire department, the fire broke out in room number 59 of Parliament at around 8 AM.
The fire was stopped in its tracks by a total of seven fire brigades that arrived on the scene. There are no reports of injuries as a result of the fire, however, the cause of the fire has yet to be determined.

The event resulted in the destruction of some tables, chairs, and laptops. The official stated, "The cause of the fire has yet to be determined."
