Devastating fire guts 35 houses in Sivasagar


Properties worth several lakh have been reduced to ashes when a devastating fire broke out in Sivasagar on Saturday.



The incident took place in the evening at Station Chariali in the heart of the town where at least 30 houses were razed to ground. The fire broke out immediately after the burst of a LPG cylinder at around 7-30 in the evening which later was quickly spreading to the adjacent houses. Fire tenders were arrived in the spot but by then the fire engulfed more than 30 houses including some shops. The extent of damage is yet to be ascertained.
