IN A minor fire incident on Sunday property worth about Rs. 5000 was gutted at the Mahakoshal Van Mela. The mishap took place only few hours before the three-day Mela got underway at 4 pm at the Garrison Grounds here.

Two fire tenders of the Jabalpur Municipal Corporation (JMC) were pressed into service. JMC Superintendent (Fire) Usman Khan informed that the incident occurred due to leakage in the cooking gas cylinder in one of the stalls in the afternoon. No one was injured in the mishap, he said.

The Ayurvedic medicine producers, coming from across the state, have displayed their products at the Mela.
