Manoj Prasad was dev­as­tated yes­ter­day to come home and see his house razed by a fire in Na­sole, Nas­inu. What hurt him the most was that mem­o­ries of his late par­ents had gone up in smoke also. He said photos and other mem­o­ra­bilia he kept about his par­ents were all de­stroyed in the fire. Mr Prasad, 34, said he was only 21-years-old when his par­ents bought the house. He is an em­ployee of Rups Big Bear in Rai­waqa.

The top flat of his cor­ru­gated iron house was on rent. He was stay­ing at the bot­tom flat with his brother. Mr Prasad claimed the fire started from the top flat. It also spread and burned a neigh­bour’s home. Suresh Chand, owner of the sec­ond home, is a bus driver.
