A fire broke out at a flat in the Haryana Janpratinidhi (MLA) apartment in Gurugram on Thursday afternoon, but all seven people from the Korean Embassy who were staying in the flat were rescued safely. The fire was caused by an electrical short circuit in the AC, according to fire officials. Two fire engines were pressed into service and the fire was brought under control after about an hour.

A platform vehicle was used to rescue the seven people, including five women. One of the women sustained a minor injury in her hand.
