Airport officials swiftly cut off power supply to the arrival and departure terminals, in order to forestall any untoward development and isolated the scene of the spark.
Fire fighters were also deployed in the affected area and were able to put the situation under control.
Securitymen also erected a metal barricade around the site.
Power supply was restored to the airport terminal within a few minutes.
Flight operations were, however, not affected while the incident lasted.
In a separate incident, a cargo plane blew off the roof of a parking lot at the airport on Wednesday night, causing damage to some cars.
The extent of damage has yet to be ascertained.
We pray and hope all hands are on deck to curb and control any loss of lives
