Massive fire engulfs residential building in Varanasi

   Apr 29, 2:53 pm

Varanasi, April 29 (ANI): A massive fire broke out in a residential building in the wee hours of Sunday in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. No casualties reported.

Four fire engines were immediately rushed to the spot to douse the blaze.

An eyewitness said though the reason was not ascertained yet they assumed that it might have occurred due to the short circuit.

"It's very difficult to say how did the fire break out. We could only see the smoke emanating from the building. We think that it happened due to short circuit. This incident took place around 3 in the morning. Efforts are still on to douse the fire," said Prem Yadav, a local.

The fire fighters have been making constant efforts to stop the fire from spreading it further.

"We got the orders to reach mass border near a picture hall and received the information that a fire broke out. The fire broke out around 4:45. It's a huge fire not an ordinary one," said Paramjeet Bahadur Singh, a fire brigade officer.

The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained. (ANI)
