Abohar, December 9

Tonnes of paddy straw was gutted in a fire triggered due to firecrackers in Patti Taja village, 10 km from here on Wednesday.

Sources said Hans Raj, who had come to the village with 150 heads of cattle to run a milk supply business a few months back, was staying in a rented accommodation. He had arranged three trailer-loads of paddy straw to use those as cattle feed.

At a marriage function today, people were bursting firecrackers that accidentally fell on the straw stacks triggering fire. Two fire tenders were called from the Municipal Corporation and a major tragedy was averted as they timely controlled it.
