A fire that broke out at the Bhutanese refugee camp in Sanischare, Morang district, gutted as many as 60 huts and goods and property worth hundred of thousands of rupees.
The fire started in the early morning at Sector D of the camp and destroyed 30 huts there. Some 30 huts were demolished to prevent the fire from spreading to other huts, said Champa Singh Rai, Secretary at the Camp. It is suspected that the fire started from a lamp lit in celebration of the Laxmi Puja festival.
The inferno was brought under control after one and a half hours through the joint efforts of the local people, two fire brigades from Jhapa district and the personnel of the Nepal Police and the Armed Police Force.
