According to reports, a fire broke out in the Bombay Boot House. The fire was noticed immediately and the Fire Brigade was informed about the fire incident. A fire tender was rushed to the spot which succeeded in dousing the fire after some struggle as the shop was situated on the main road having heavy traffic.
