At least eight (8) houses were gutted in a freak fire accident that occurred from a candle burnt at Premnagar area of Indo-Myanmar border town Moreh near Gate No. 2 last night. One person sustained serious burnt and has been evacuated at a hospital in Imphal.
Report reaching here said that freak fire accident occurred at around 10.30 pm yesterday. Fire tender of the government fire service which rushed the site failed to extinguish with limited tankers. However, with the assistance of the private water tanker vehicles, the fire was extinguished before it spread wider.
According to our Moreh Correspondent, the place where the fire broke out is only few metres away from the fire service substation.  But private water tankers vehicles of Moreh area and Fire Tender from Myanmar side and people of the area rushed and extinguished the fire from spreading further before the Fire Tender of the Fire service reached the spot.
Moreh people expressed dissatisfaction to the irresponsive attitude of the Fire Service and urged government to investigate on why they took so long in reaching the spot.
Chairman, Autonomous District Council ,Chandel, Lukhosei Zou today extended immediate monetary help for the victims at around 11 am today.
