APA-Harare (Zimbabwe)

Fire gutted part of the Indian Embassy in the Zimbabwe's capital Harare on Monday in what is suspected to have been an electrical fault.

Indian ambassador Rangsung Masakui told the state-owned Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation that the fire was confined to the embassy’s accounts office.

“I was alerted by one of the employees in the accounts department at around 0830 hours (0630 GMT) that there was fire in the accounts office,” Masakui said.

No one was injured in the inferno, which was quickly put out by the fire brigade.
