Fire guts down a hut

Nov 17, 2010

A hut in Dopshari village under Shari Geog in Paro was razed to ground by a fire last night. The fire broke out at around 9:50 pm. Fire fighters managed to control the fire at around 1 am this morning.

Although no casualties were reported, the family lost all their belongings including religious items and savings of Nu. 50,000 in the incident.

Our reporter in Paro says that, although the fire fighting trucks arrived at the scene on time, lack of road and water in the area made it difficult for the fire fighters to save the hut.

Fire fighters were however, able to save 14 Dema statues.
