SRINAGAR: At least two houses were damaged after a massive fire broke out in the Kalwal Mohalla Rainawari area of central Kashmir’s Srinagar district on Thursday.
Quoting officials, news agency GNS reported that the fire broke out in one house and soon after spread to another house in proximity, causing damage to the roofs and upper parts of both houses.
Soon after the news broke, the men from F&ES rushed to the spot. Despite the tightly packed and congested area, the fire was eventually brought under control. “The men are doing their job, and the fire will be contained down within some time,” an F&ES official added.
The cause of the fire and the identification of the house owners is yet to be ascertained.
