No deaths or injuries were reported, but the blaze destroyed shops that sold food and interior decorations in a 200sq.m area.

Ten fire-fighting trucks were sent to extinguish the fire that was put out after an hour. The firefighters removed 10 industrial gas cylinders and a 13kg cooking gas cylinder from a food joint. Gas was leaking from some cylinders, but the leaks were plugged in time.
