Kochi: A major fire broke out in Broadway, the commercial hub of Ernakulam on Monday morning at about 10 ‘0 clock. Four units of fire force have reached the spot. They are trying to put the fire under control.
According to initial reports, the fire was reported from a shop named Pappu and sons. It is a wholesale shop dealing with textile and stitching works.
The blaze reportedly also spread to the nearby bakery. Shops clustered together makes it easier for the fire to spread.
Hence precautions are being taken from preventing the fire from spreading.
People have been evacuated from the premises.
