“All our goods were reduced to ash. Fortunately, the fire was brought under control in time, and the fire did not spread to the other floors,” said Shankar, a wholesaler, who had stocked shawls in the godown.

The cause for the fire is not known yet, but a short-circuit is suspected to be the reason behind the incident.
