New Delhi, Feb 27 (IANS) A day after a fire broke out in the Times of India building here, another blaze was reported at the newspaper office on Monday but was doused after an almost seven hour effort by firefighters, a fire officer said.

“We received a fire call at the Times of India building around noon. Eighteen fire tenders battled the fire on the first and second floors of the building near ITO office,” a Delhi Fire officer told IANS.

“The fire was finally doused at 7 p.m. on Monday. Eight fire engines will work through the night to control the fire smouldering in burnt down portions of the building,” the officer said.
