“The firemen doused the flames at 4.55 a.m. and even the cooling process has now been completed,” the official said.

Smoke could be seen billowing out from the top floor of the two-storey building having an area of 150 to 200 square yards.

“All the two floors (Basement + 2) had caught fire,” he said adding some area where the clothes were kept on the stairs going towards the terrace had also caught the fire.

No injuries were reported then.
