An unruly mob in Mokokchung damaged the windshield and body of a fire tender of the fire department Wednesday morning after it reportedly arrived “too late” to douse an inferno caused by a short circuit at Salangtem Ward near Milak junction, Mokokchung. Irate public said repeated calls made to the Fire station were left unanswered and when the fire tenders arrived, the house was almost burned down. Public became more angry when it did not have any water and pelted stones and hitting it with sticks. DC Mokokchung and other officials present tried to pacify the agitated mob but to no avail. It was only after about half an hour that the situation was under control. Fire was later brought under control with the help of the public. Reports said the fire tender responded only after the DC reached the fire station. The burnt building housed two shops and a family. There was no report of loss of life or injury.
