Cuttack: At least 30 vehicles including two-wheelers and four-wheelers were gutted in a deadly fire which erupted at a scrap godown located at Mani Sahu Square under Cantonment police limits in the city last night.
The mishap came to fore after some locals spotted smokes billowing out of the scrap godown at around 2.30 AM in the night and raised an alarm. Located only a few meters away from the Buxi Bazar Fire Brigade Office, fire tenders reached the spot immediately and made efforts to bring the blaze under control. The fire was doused after a Herculean effort of one hour by at least three fire tenders.
However, till the fire was contained, it had reduced at least 25 two-wheelers and five four-wheelers to ashes completely.
A Fire Department source said around 70 litres of foam were used in the fire extinguishing operation.
The loss incurred due to the fire is only marginal as the burnt vehicles were disposed ones.
