Mangaluru: A house located at Tiruvail in Vamanjoor, belonging to Gopal, was gutted in fire on Friday.
An electrical short circuit is said to have possibly caused the fire. Fortunately nobody was present in the house at the time of mishap.
But the fire service came to know about it quite late. By the time they arrived and executed the dousing operation, flames had already engulfed most part of the house.
Total loss could be around Rs 50,000, said family sources.
