This is the second major fire incident reported in India on Saturday. Earlier in the afternoon, a coach of the Delhi-Dehradun Jan Satabdi Express train caught fire near the Rajaji Tiger Reserve in the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand due to a short circuit. All 35 people onboard were rescued.

Seven fire trucks were called to Delhi's famous Shankar’s International Doll Museum after a blaze was reported. 


While the cause of the fire is being investigated, no causalities have been reported so far. Images of dense black smoke billowing from the museum's windows have surfaced on social media. 

​The fire is now reportedly under control.

The famous doll museum was established in central Delhi back in 1965 by K. Shankar Pillai, a political cartoonist. Today, it houses nearly 7,000 dolls from almost 85 countries.

The extent of the damage is not yet known.
