About 23 shops were affected due to the little delay in reaching out to the Fire Brigade. “The cause of the inferno was suspected to be an electric spark, even though the intelligent team of the state Fire Brigade is still working on that to unravel and ascertain the actual cause or causes of the fire outbreak.”
