PUNE: A minor fire broke out on a stretch of grass near the runway of the Solapur airport in Maharashtra on Sunday night, a Fire Brigade official said.

Prima facie, firecrackers burst by some people while responding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call to switch off lights at 9 pm might have sparked the blaze, he said.

"The fire broke out at 9:30 pm. We sent four fire tenders to the spot and the fire was extinguished within 15 to 20 minutes," he said.
