Two houses were gutted in a fire that broke out at Merhülietsa colony here on Thursday night.

Although the exact cause of the fire could not be ascertained, fire department officials suspect a gas leakage caused the fire incident. One of the houses, a private residence, was completely destroyed while the other house, a government quarter belonging to medical department was partially gutted. 

There were no reports of any casualty, but all the properties in both the houses were completely destroyed except for a few documents that were recovered from the partially destroyed house.

Fire department informed that they received the call at 8:32 p.m. after which they swung into action and brought the fire under control with the help of neighbours.

Merhülietsa colony head GB Vilakuolie Khezhie, who was also present at the scene to take stock of the situation, said they were trying to ascertain the exact cause of the fire and extent of the damage.

The head GB urged the people to follow safety measures especially during festive seasons.
