The fire broke out from some residential house which spread to other buildings. Eyewitnesses told Kashmir Life that many residential houses were gutted in the devastating fire so far.
Fire and emergency department rushed many fire tenders to control the fire from spreading. Pertinently, Maharaja Bazar is a famous shopping area of Srinagar where hundreds of residential houses are also located.
Police and civil administration officials have also reached the spot.
This is the second fire incident in the city in less than one week. Earlier, one part of the only maternity hospital Lal Ded was damaged in fire.
