The incident occurred at 7:30 pm on March 13 and was spotted by some residents living near the company complex. They alerted other people and helped extinguish the fire, preventing it from spreading to surrounding areas. However, the dining room which was made of wood continued to burn as the flames blazed furiously.
Two fire trucks and tens of firemen were called to the scene and the fire was finally controlled in 15 minutes.
Police said that it was fortunate that at that time, the place was closed to outside visitors and tourists or else the accident could have caused casualties. The extent of the material damage could not be confirmed.
The cause of the fire is being investigated.
