Furniture and other articles were gutted in a tractor showroom after a fire broke out on the first floor of a commercial complex opposite Shell petrol bunk on the Raj Bhavan Road in Punjagutta on Wednesday.
An attender noticed the flames erupting in a corner of the showroom and rushed downstairs. Since it was raining heavily and traffic was choked on the road, the fire-tender could not reach on time.
The Punjagutta police, however, said no person was injured in the fire. The value of the property lost in the fire is yet to be estimated.
