Assam: More than 8 stores hit by a catastrophic fire in Duliajan

This area is said to be the main business hub where eight stores are said to have burned down.

Locals living there claimed that an electrical short circuit could have caused the fire, although the actual reason behind it is not yet clear.

Also, three fire brigades from Oil India Limited arrived at the location, and an hour later they were able to control the fire.

Due to the prompt intervention of OIL’s efforts, the fire could not spread to the rest of the commercial area and the rest of the stores were saved.

However, the fire has lost hundreds of thousands of rupees worth of property, but so far no casualties have been reported. Meanwhile, the police arrived there and conducted an investigation.
