Massive fire engulfs Jyoti Bhawan; branch of Nepal Bank destroyed


KATHMANDU: A massive fire engulfed the Jamal-based Jyoti Bhawan in the capital on Friday morning. The fire was taken under control after almost 45 minutes. Although there was no human causality in the incident, the fire damaged property worth millions of rupees. However, the exact loss caused due to the fire is yet to be calculated.

The fire was believed to be started from the Nepal Bank Limited branch office stationed in the second floor of the building. The fire gutted almost all official documents, furniture and other goods inside the office. However, the cash locker and very sensitive documents are said to be safe. Issuing a statement this afternoon the bank said that the public properties are safe.

The building owned by leading business enterprise Jyoti Group houses many corporate offices including a bank. The building houses Hero Honda bike showroom in the ground floor, Kantipath branch of Nepal Bank Limited and Grande Hospital clinic.

A team of security personnel backed by five fire engines were able to take the blaze under control after almost 45 minutes and prevented the further loss.

Vehicular movement was affected in the area following the tragedy. The cause behind the fire has yet to be known. In May earlier this year, a massive fire had engulfed the Pilgrims Book House of Thamel, a major tourist hub of the Capital. The incident of fire has been increasing in the capital due to lack of proper planning and unsafe preparations by public while constructing building.
