Rajpur (Madhya Pradesh): A three-storey garment showroom named Chandni 2 located at Cloth Market caught fire on Sunday morning.

It took about three hours to control the fire. Owner Khatri Rafiq said that an estimated Rs 3-4 crore of products have been damaged in the fire.

According to locals, they saw a plume of smoke coming out of the building and when the owner opened the shutter, the entire shop was engulfed in the fire. The flames also engulfed the neighbouring ready-made garment shop and that too was completely burnt. SDM Veer Singh Chauhan, TI Yashwant Barolay and the entire police force was deployed to prevent any accident.
