Eyewitnesses said that fire services department reached the spot in minutes and after hectic efforts controlled the fire from spreading to adjacent shops; however goods in these shops suffered a heavy damage due to the water used for extinguishing the fire.
Locals have praised the efforts of Fire Services Department, saying that if the firemen had not reached the spot in time, the loss would have been many folds.
Pertinently, the market in which these shops were located, was already suffering a huge decline in the business after the bus stand from Batmaloo was shifted to Parimpora and with Tuesday evening fire, victims of the incident are pushed to additional sufferings.
Police is ascertaining the cause of the fire; however locals ruled out electric short circuit to be the cause of fire, saying that shopkeepers used to cut the power supply to the market, every evening. (CNS)
