Within hours of a devastating blaze in a Kondhwa bakery that killed six persons in the wee hours of Friday, another fire broke out at a carpet godown in Bibwewadi, barely a few kilometers from the bakery. Soon after the mishap, four fire tenders and two water tankers were rushed to the spot by the fire brigade.

But the narrow roads in the locality made it difficult for the fire tenders to reach the spot, as a result of which fire engulfed the entire godown and a neighbouring shop. According to fire brigade officials, no casualties were reported in the mishap and it took them more than three hours to bring the situation under control. They said the fire broke out around 10am and yet to ascertain what caused it.
