"The damage is expected to be around 50 lakhs ...Why the fire erupted is still unknown?" said Vikas Thackrey, a Fire Fighting Officer.

"More than 40 fire fighting soliders are engaged to douse fire. We wanted that the fire should not damage stock in the neighbouring spice godown. Due to the efforts of our men, we have been able to bring fire under control," Thackrey added. (ANI)
