A car was partially destroyed in a fire that broke out inside the Chennai airport early on Friday. Airport sources said the car operated by a private agency had reached the airport around 4 a.m. after picking up cabin crew from different parts of the city. The occupants noticed smoke from the car and rushed to safety. A couple of fire tenders put out the flames. About an hour later, a couple of high power lamps near the arrival area of international terminal burst resulting in a minor fire.
