Islamabad [Pakistan], Jan 2 (ANI): Several important documents were burnt after a fire erupted in the storeroom of Pakistan's Ministry of Law and Justice building, which also housed a project office of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), on Tuesday.

According to the Geo News, the fire was caused due to an electrical short-circuit.

No casualty has been reported so far.

The authorities informed they were still uncertain about the documents destroyed in the fire.
