A fire that broke out at the Assam Secretariat in Dispur on Thursday reduced to ashes a few crucial files belonging to finance department. 

Believed to have been originated from electric short circuit, the fire broke out when chief minister Sarbanabda Sonowal was holding his cabinet meeting in the morning. 

Within an hour, fire tenders brought the situation under control. But many crucial files were gutted by the fire.
