Baramulla: A shop was gutted in Pehlipora village of Boniyar tehsil on Saturday morning.
Local residents said that fire broke out in the kiryana shop of Gulam Nabi Bhat Saturday morning. A fire tender from Baramulla reached the spot and prevented the fire from spreading to other structures, while the shop was completely gutted.
Soon after the incident, a large number of people took to streets and staged protest for not setting up a fire station in Tehsil Boniyar, which the government had announced two years ago.
People said that two fire stations were announced for Sheeri and Boniyar tehsils years ago, however they were yet to be set up.
