The incident occurred on Sunday at 11.52 p.m. at the building located in Shashi Garden of Gandhi Nagar. “Ten fire tenders were pressed into service and the fire was doused 12.45 a.m. on Monday. Two bodies, which are yet to be identified, were moved out from the building. A firefighter suffered a shoulder injury during the rescue operation,” the officer said.

Some family members were rescued with the help of the locals and firefighters,” he said. The owner of the building lived on the third floor.
