Mangaluru: Wedding Guests in Brief Panic as Sudden Fire Breaks out near Kadri Park

Mangaluru: Hundreds of guests had gathered to take part in a wedding ceremony in a hall near the Kadri park around Sunday noon.

The atmosphere of celebration was disturbed for a brief period with a sudden fire that broke out nearby. It is suspected that the fire was caused by a passerby who may have thrown a burning cigarette or bidi on a heap of refuse and dry leaves by the side of the road.

The flames that emanated from it spread closer towards the hall in no time. Although it was not likely that the gathering would have been affected, an atmosphere of fear and panic prevailed among them for some time.

The fire service arrived from Kadri Kuntikana and extinguished it.
