On Monday, 26th April, a massive fire broke out in Dibrugarh’s Chandmari ghat destroying as many as six houses and properties worth lakhs.
The root of the fire remains vague although as per reports, the blaze first broke out in a grocery shop which later spread to other houses in the area.
Fire tenders later reached the spot and were able to extinguish the unprecedented fire. No injuries were reported.
Sources say it was due to a candle light that was lit after a power cut in the area.
