Breaks out Atop Tirumala Hills due to electric short circuit which occurred at
a shopping lane. One man has died and several shops gutted near Bedi Anjanneya
Swami Temple on Tirumala Hill close to Asthana Mandapam opposite the Main Sri
Venkateswara Temple. The shopping complex on the lane houses 150 shops. The
deceased youth is from the shop from the fire started
As many as
20 shops were gutted leading to an estimated loss of Rs 70 lakhs, as per the reports by the Tirumala Fire Station.
Since the incident happened in the early hours of the morning the damages were
less. The fire station rushed its machinery and brought the situation under
control. A detailed report will be submitted
to the Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam Board TTD after investigation.
Due to the
lockdown in neighbouring states the inflow of pilgrims to the holy centre has
considerably reduced otherwise the scenario would’ve been different.
