Six persons were injured and property worth lakhs of rupees gutted in a fire that engulfed two houses of Narayan Chimariya, a businessman at Panchthar’s Tharpu bazaar, last night.

According to Chimariya, the fire that started at 1:00 am caught the residents, fast asleep at the time, off-guard. Two houses, cash, household goods and important documents were gutted.
