Major fire in paper unit at Jagatpur

CUTTACK: Properties worth over Rs 1 crore are stated to be gutted in a paper industry located under Jagatpur industrial complex about 10 km from here on Thursday afternoon. Since the industry was closed on the day for the elections, no one was inside the unit when the mishap occurred except few choukidars guarding it outside.

According to Jagatpur police station Inspector Bidyut Panda, the fire broke out in Cosboard Industries Limited, a paper unit around 1 p.m. when one of the choukidars informed this to the police station. Soon six fire tenders, four from Buxibazar fire station and two from Chauliaganj fire station rushed to the spot.
