A fire which broke out in a building at Delhi's AIIMS hospital was brought under control, the fire department said yesterday. 

No casualty was reported in the fire.

The fire reportedly started at a building near the emergency ward of the hospital. The fire department evacuated people from the building, which houses doctors' rooms and research labs, reports NDTV.

Around 34 fire engines took part in the fire-fighting operation.

The fire started at the first floor of the building, but the smoke spread to the second floor, a senior fire official told NDTV.

Former finance minister Arun Jaitley is undergoing treatment at the hospital, but he is admitted in a different building, the official added.

A Delhi Fire Services official told news agency PTI that they received a call on fire in the PC and Teaching Block of the hospital at around 5pm local time.
