Patna: Property worth lakhs of rupees were gutted following a devastating fire that broke into two flats of Nutan Tower Apartment near Colony Mor under Kankarbagh police station here on Monday,

The helper, who was sleeping in a room of the flat, felt suffocated in the Sunday/Monday night due to smoke which engulfed the room badly. She woke up and called the neighbors.

On being informed, five fire tenders rushed to the spot and tamed the blazing flames. Police said actual loss of the property could only be quantified after the return of the owner.


 Police, however, could not rule out the possibility of short circuit as cause of the fire.
