According to eyewitness, the fire broke out at around 1:45 pm and completely razed down the thatched houses and destroyed 90 percent of the household goods. However, timely intervention of the fire personnel averted the fire from spreading towards the aluminium factory. It took two and half hours for 10 fire tenders to completely douse off the fire.
No causality was reported and the cause of the fire could not be ascertained.
Meanwhile, former DMC chairperson and ward member, Khekaho Assumi, GBs and council members who were present at the site thanked the fire personnel for their timely intervention in dousing off the fire.
