Locals say that the fire may have started due to a short circuit. The building was constructed five years ago and it is being said that the builder sold apartments in the building without providing an occupational certificate (OC). With all this, there was no fire equipment installed in the building. Police are investigating the matter further.

The fire started on the 12th floor of the tower and it was under control after almost two hours of tireless effort. Around 10 to 12 people were recused from the building.
