The fire broke in the Sherbagh area at around 12:40 am and soon spread to nearby structures. While a fire brigade arrived at the spot soon after, the fire had already spread to a larger area making it difficult to douse the flames.

Srinagar: At least three complexes including a shopping-cum-residential complex and a Pandit Ashram were gutted in fire in the Sherbagh area of south Kashmir's Anantnag district last night, reports said on Tuesday.
