The locals and fire services personnel started operations to douse the flames. However, all documents and valuables might have been gutted in the fire,” informed Chakapalasia Seva Samabaya Samiti President Shyamsundar Rout.

“The cooperative office was shut due to indefinite strike. I received a call from president Shyamsundar Rout about the fire incident at around 4 am today. The fire might have broken out due to short circuit. All the valuables at the office are assumed to be destroyed in the incident,” said Chakapalasia Seva Samabaya Samiti director.
