In another incident, a TV set blew up and led to a fire at a house in Sathuvachari. Residents of the house had gone to a hospital and left the house when there was power shutdown. However, they had left the television set on. When the power supply resumed, the TV set blew up. Neighbours broke open the house and put off the fire.
