Bhubaneswar: A minor fire broke out at the lift room panel board of Apollo Hospital due to electric short-circuit here on Wednesday evening.

There was no report about the loss of property and lives following the fire incident.
Bhubaneswar Fire Officer TK Babu said the blaze caused by short-circuiting was doused before fire personnel reached the Apollo Hospital.
