Business Bhutan - - Business -

A fire burnt four sawmills in Kartshog Ge­wog in Haa on Tues­day af­ter­noon.

Ac­cord­ing to sources, the fire started around 3pm and no ca­su­al­ties were re­ported. An LPG cylin­der is also re­ported to have ex­ploded. Con­tain­ing the fire was dif­fi­cult due to windy con­di­tions and it led the fire to spread to other three sawmills.

Of the four sawmills, three were razed to the ground while one was par­tially burnt. The cause of the fire has not been known. The po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cause of the fire.
