A fire broke out on the compound of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur on Thursday evening, fire brigade sources said. There was no loss of life or property.
Firefighters fought for some time and contained the blaze which broke out in bushes, sources in the Kharagpur Fire station said.
Dry leaves caught fire in an area full of plants on the campus in the evening, an IIT Kharagpur teacher told PTI.
"All the buildings are located some distance away from where the fire had broken out," he said.
Three fire tenders have been pressed into service, sources said.
