A Cargo Honda worskshop situated at Ladowali road in Central Town locality was gutted into fire that broke out around 5 am on Tuesday morning.

As many as ten fire tenders were pressed in to control the flames, which took three hours to douse the fire at the basement of the workshop. No casualty has been reported in the blaze.

The fire-fighters faced difficulties in controlling the fire due to intense darkness and smog who took flashlights to find the spot.

Sub-Fire officer BB Jassi said that an electric short-circuit is believed to have caused the blaze, but the exact cause is yet to be ascertained, which will be done after an investigation by senior officials of the department.

Jassi added that as the workshop was located in the basement, there was not any chimney or exhaust fan due to which workers took three hours to control the situation.

The officials of workshop did not speak to the media.
