Pune: Fire at Nanded restaurant, no casualties

The incident happened at Bhavvesh restaurant, located on the second floor of a building in the Korde Baug area of Nanded city around 2 am on Monday. The entire dining area of the restaurant was damaged.

A major fire was reported at a restaurant in the Nanded City area of Pune early Monday morning which caused severe damage to the entire dining area of the establishment, according to fire brigade officials. No casualties were reported in the fire, as per initial reports.

The incident occurred at Hotel Bhavvesh on the second floor of a building in the Korde Baug area of Nanded at 2 am.

According to Pune Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (PMRDA)’s fire brigade officials, the first call from local residents was placed to them at 1.58 am. Three fire tenders from PMRDA fire brigade and one from Sinhagad Road fire station of Pune City Fire Brigade were deployed immediately.

An official from the PMRDA fire brigade said: “The dining area of the hotel had a lot of wooden and plywood furniture. Almost the entire dining area, spread over 2,000 square feet, was heavily damaged by the time the fire was brought under control. Fortunately, the fire did not spread to the kitchen because it is a separate unit. It could have caused further damage due to the presence of gas cylinders. While the primary cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained, we believe it started in the dining area. The fire did not spread to any neighbouring building or other floors. Residents have told us that there were no staffers present inside. No casualties have been reported as per our initial findings.”

A probe will be conducted into the possible cause of the fire, a police official said.
