The fire spread so fast that people trapped in the house did not get a chance to escape.The shop owner says that the spark of the fire came out of the meter and went down through the wires. I came to know of the fire when there was a fire in the carton of Tarpin kept near my seat in the shop. I picked up a carton of 6 cans of turpentine to throw in a burning condition. At the same time, a box fell from the carton and a fire spread to the entire store.
