Patna: Authorities are searching for the cause of a fire that broke out in a shop in Rajiv Nagar on Thursday afternoon consuming another shop in its flame and causing loss of several lakh rupees in cash and properties.
As reported, smoke was seen coming out of a small kirana (grocery) store on Ghud Daur Road in Rajiv Nagar. Before something could be done about it, the smoke turned into blazing flame setting another shop on fire.
A stack of hay outside the shop further aggravated the situation spreading the flame to a parked tractor that was completely destroyed in the fire.
It took more than 40 minutes before fire trucks arrived on the spot and another hour or so to bring the fire under control.
Cause of the fire remains under investigation.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
