A large fire at the only airport in Wamena, central Papua province, has caused major damage, a report said on Monday.
State news agency Antara reported the blaze began at 2:30 a.m. on Monday morning, causing damage to a number of facilities, including the baggage area and ticketing windows.
Local police said an electrical short circuit was suspected to have triggered the fire though the cause remained under investigation.
The airport is the major transportation hub for Papua’s central highlands, the scene of ongoing conflict between Indonesian security forces and members of the indigenous population.
Antara did not say if flights had been affected.
