brought under control within minutes, it said. An office computer was destroyed in the fire.

Meanwhile at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Domestic Airport in Mumbai, several flights of Jet Airways and Sahara Airlines were delayed on Friday morning.

The check-in systems of both the airlines at terminal 1B were down from 5.30 a.m. to 7.50 a.m., airport sources said. However, the flights of Indian Airlines were unaffected, they added.
