As many as six houses were gutted in a fire that erupted in Dibrugarh’s Chandmari ghat late Monday.
As per a report, the blaze first broke out in a grocery shop which later spread to other houses in the vicinity. Properties worth lakhs were destroyed.
The cause of the fire remains unclear. Sources say it was due to a candle light that was lit after a power cut in the area.
Fire tenders later reached the spot and were able to douse the unprecedented fire. No injuries were reported.
