THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A major portion of a SBI building was gutted in a fire outbreak early Monday. The timely intervention of the Kerala Fire and Rescue Services prevented the fire from spreading to other parts of the building and thereby, derailing the normal functioning of the bank.

Fire had broken out in the Centralised Clearing Processing Cell (CCPC) of the SBI in the first floor of its branch at the Panavila junction. While the incident was reported at 4.50 a.m. by employees who turned up for work, the fire is suspected to have broken out much earlier.

Four units from the Chengalchoola fire station rushed to the spot and managed to douse the fire within a little over an hour. The fire fighting operation was led by Assistant Divisional Officer Abdul Rasheed. The CCPC unit, the only centralised unit of the bank in the state to handle cheque clearances, is believed to have suffered damage worth at least Rs 50 lakh, according to preliminary estimates. The short-circuit in an air-conditioner is suspected to have led to the fire outbreak. The banking hall, which had around 20 computer systems, was completely gutted in the fire. Several furniture, false ceiling and wiring were severely damaged.
