A kitchen was partially damaged in a fire incident that broke out due to a faulty gas cylinder at Thamnan ward of Mon town on Tuesday at around 8am.
According to the housewife, the pin of the gas cylinder came off along with the seal while she was opening the newly filled cylinder.
The fire in the kitchen came in contact with the cylinder instantly before she could do anything.

Fire tender rushed to the spot and doused off the fire.
