A major fire broke out at Ghasswala compound in Oshiwara which has many furniture shops. Several shops were gutted in the fire. The fire brigade vehicles immediately arrived on the spot but could control the fire only after three hours as the shops were located in very narrow lanes. A four-storeyed building situated very close to these shops would have been gutted to but with the help of the local residents and the fire brigade department, it was controlled. A local spoke with us and stated that the fire might have erupted from one of the shops were welding work was being carried out.
