A devastating fire broke out at Shahi Darbar, a popular food joint located in Guwahati’s Fancy Bazar area behind the Ganpati Plaza trapping several people who were later rescued by the Fire Safety department here.
The incident was reported at around 5 pm on September 26th, 2019 and there were at least 10 customers inside the hotel premises and the hotel staff. The fire broke out at the kitchen and fanned out from the kitchen window. The customers were immediately evacuated from the hotel as fire tenders reached the spot to douse the flames.
“The people were quickly evacuated from the front door of the hotel and due to the heavy smoke that suspended in the air, the people were made to crawl out of the restaurant,” a local said.
Hundreds of people gathered at the SRCB road as efforts are on to bring the situation under control.
