Mulki: House in Haleangady Gutted in Fire – Closure of Railway Gate Worsens Effect

Mulki: A sudden fire broke out in the house of Dawood, son of Abdul Qader-Mariamma couple, located in Indiranagar near Haleangady on Monday.

An electrical short circuit in the switchboard is suspected to have caused the fire. Valuable records, school documents, furniture, clothings, utensil and household equipment and appliances perished in the flames. Luckily enough, all members of the family had gone out and hence there was no harm to them.

Although the fire service arrived within a short time, the tenders were blocked at the Tokur railway gate on the way to Pakshikere. If they had been able to reach in time, much loss could have been reduced, said immediate neighbours.

The residents of the vicinity took upon themselves the dousing operation. Water from a catering firm’s vehicle was used to extinguish the flames. This prevented the fire from spreading to other houses.
