Houses of 4 families razed in massive fire in Kendrapara village
Kendrapara: Houses of four families were reduced to ashes in a massive fire which broke out at Giranga village of Marshaghai block in Kendrapara district late last night. However, no casualty has been reported.
According to sources, the incident occurred in the late hours when the fire engulfed the houses within a few minutes.
On being informed, two fire brigades from Marshaghai and Mahakalapada reached the spot and doused the flames. However, by then property worth lakhs including furniture, goods, and paddy were reduced to cinders.
It is suspected that the fire might have erupted from a short circuit in one of the houses which later engulfed the neighbouring houses rendering the families shelterless.
