Yesterday, two vehicles caught fire in separate incidents in the state.
A vehicle loaded with rice straw came into contact with an electric while on its way to Signal Basti in Karbi Anglong and burnt down the entire vehicle with rice straw on it. The driver of the vehicle had sustained minor burn injuries.
On the other hand in Jorhat, employees of a petrol pump mistakenly filled a car with diesel while it was still repairing which caused the fire. The fire was immediately extinguished by firefighters and employees of the petrol pump.
