  • Description

    ONE PERSON WAS KILLED AND TEN INJURED WHEN FIRES DESTROYED 200 FRUIT STALLS AND PAVEMENT SHOPS IN DELHI'S FRUIT AND VEGETABLE BAZAAR OVER THE WEEK-END.

    THOUSANDS OF POUNDS (STERLING) OF DAMAGE WERE CAUSED BY THE TWO BLAZES WHICH BROKE OUT ON SATURDAY (11 MAY) AND SUNDAY (12 MAY) IN THE NARROW, TWISTING LANES OF THE OLD CITY'S BAZAAR QUARTER.

    ON SUNDAY DENSE SMOKE BELCHED OUT FROM THE BURNING BUILDINGS AS CREWS FROM OVER 20 FIRE ENGINES, ASSISTED BY POLICE AND PUBLIC, WORKED IN THE INTENSE HEAT TO CONTROL THE FLAMES.

    SHOPKEEPERS RUSHED FROM THEIR HOMES TO RECOVER WHAT THEY COULD FROM THE ENGULFING BLAZE.

    APART FROM THE DAMAGE TO PROPERTY A LARGE AMOUNT OF MONEY IS REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN LOST IN THE FIRE. BUT NO ESTIMATE IS YET AVAILABLE OF THE TOTAL LOSS. THE CASE, TOO, IS SO FAR UNKNOWN.
