Poultry farm gutted

At least 2,200 chickens were burnt to death when a major fire broke out at a poultry farm at Gaspara of Raha in Nagaon district.Local people rushed out of their houses and initiated the work to extinguish the flames but could not save any of the birds.

KrishnaNath, a resident of Gaspara, who owns the poultry farm saw his entire poultry farm going up in flames on saturday night. Although the owner including some locals succeeded in dousing the fire within half an hour but went in vain as all the birds were dead by then. The exact cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained whether it spreads from any earthen lamp or electric short circuit or an enmity reason.
