12 shops gutted in fire in UP's Etawah

Etawah, Nov 23 (PTI) Twelve shops have been gutted in a fire at the Nai Mandi complex here in Uttar Pradesh, a senior official said on Thursday.

No casualties were reported in the incident that took place on Wednesday night.

Fire tenders were sent to the site after people reported the fire in the market area. It took fire-fighters two hours to control the blaze that gutted 12 shops, the official said.

It seems a short circuit led to the fire, according to SDM (Sadar) Vikram Raghav.

Rice, fruits and vegetables worth lakhs of rupees kept in boxes and sacks in these shops were destroyed in the fire, Raghav said, adding that the exact loss will be ascertained after taking information from traders. PTI COR SAB ANB ANB
