Luckily no one hurt in the fire, but shops and residential houses are totally destroyed in it. Although fire is controlled, yet affected people are blaming fire brigade for huge loses. They alleged that fire brigade office is about 100m from the spot but they don’t have enough water to gauge it in time.
