The fire started in the Bamboo Bazaar and spread to other shops, even as 17 fire tenders were pressed into action to ensure the flames do not spread to the nearby residential areas, Times Now reported. The report further added that the fire resulted in an estimated loss of Rs 15 crore.

The shops in the area sold plywood, other furniture and related items.
