As reported, the incident occurred around 10:00 am on Tuesday when some people in the building notice smoke coming out of the office on second floor. Shortly, one could see flame coming out of the windows.

Since the building is located next to the posh Pataliputra Hotel, those staying in the hotel scrambled to vacate the building thinking the flame might affect the hotel as well.
