A fire that broke out early morning at the Indira Gandhi International Airport New Delhi cargo terminal operated by Celebi , is under control. No casualties nor damage to cargo was reported.

The fire was most likely caused by a burning cigarette butt left by workers, an airport official tells Aerospace Diary. “There is old wooden furniture around, so it is possible the fire started there.” The area has only airline offices. 

Celebi staff has been working since the early hours to repair the wiring that was affected to get systems functioning. Ninety percent processing of cargo has started, an official said.
