Udupi, June 30, 2015 : As many as seven huts belonging to migrant labourers at Adi Udupi were destroyed in a fire on June 30, Tuesday.
There were a total of 45 huts spread over three acres of land belonging to one Vittal Shetty. It has been gathered that the fire from a stove spread to nearby things in a hut, due to strong winds resulting in the mishap.
However no one was injured in the mishap as most workers and children were away. A woman who happened to notice the fire, immediately informed the fire service department. As the area was inaccessible to fire tender vehicles, the fire service personnel had a tough time in extinguishing the fire which was finally doused.
A case has been registered by Udupi Town Police.
