Bhubaneswar: A major fire broke out at an office stationery shop named Pen Hospital in Bhubaneswar on Monday. The shop is situated at Master Canteen Square of the Capital city.

While the exact reason behind the fire is yet to be known, it is suspected that short-circuit might have caused the fire. It spread to the entire shop as it houses inflammatory materials.

The shops used to sell different office stationery items like staplers, punching machine, sticky tapes, scissors, glue, calculator, tape dispenser, desk tidy, pen cups, note holders, paper clip, waste buckets, ink cartridges, toners, printing papers, photocopy papers, card holders , files, folders, letter holders, document holders, paper trays, envelope, notebooks, wire bound notebooks, writing pads, personal organizers, ballpoint pens, fountain pens, pencils, porous point pen, rollerball pen, highlighter pen, markers and many more.

A heavy traffic jam was seen at the post as Master Canteen Square is one of the major locations of Bhubaneswar and several passersby stopped their vehicles to have a glance of the fire mishap.

Efforts are on to douse the fire at possible earliest time so that it does not spread to other neighbouring shops, said sources.
