Dhaka: A fire on Friday broke out inside the Air India office at Bangladesh's international airport here, officials said.

Ten firefighting units were working to douse the fire that started around noon at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.

An Air India official told PTI the fire originated from the office of the airline.

However, he did not specify the cause of the fire.

The airport's third storey houses the offices of Air India and Saudi Airlines, a duty officer of the Armed Police Battalion (APBn) was quoted by the bdnews24.

Electricity supply to the airport has been cut off.

Employees and passengers being evacuated from the various floors have reported seeing smoke inside the building.

Departures have been suspended as people arriving for their flights were being barred from entering the airport, a security official said.

The fire at Bangladesh's main airport may hamper flights for Hajj pilgrims.
