Fire ravages house in Namrup

Properties worth several lakhs were reduced to ashes when a house caught fire in Namrup on Thursday.

The incident took place in Salibasa near the Durga temple at around 10.30 night when the local residents were busy with the puja.

Suddenly people noticed smokes bellowing from the house of Amal Bora which engulfed the entire building within half and hour. Fire tenders from BVFCL and APL brought the situation under control.

The real cause of the incident is being investigated and the extent of damage would be assessed later on.
