As reported by CJ Prostil-
A fire broke out at the main switchboard at the Central bus stand yesterday mid night. The worst part there was no fire extinguishers or other fire fighting equipment at such a crowded place. The locals there brought the fire under control and even after 20 minutes or so the Fire brigade had not responded. There is the Market police station just opposite the Bus stand but there were no fire extinguishers there or they might not be working. Not much damage was done to property or life but fire fighting equipment is a necessity in such highly crowded areas.
The authorities should look into this seriously and make arrangements for fire fighting equipment and with the same regular maintenance of the same should be under taken.
