Just a couple of days ago, a resto-bar at Park Street, Olypub, had to be shut indefinitely after a fire broke out at its ground floor kitchen. The fire had started around 5 PM while the ground and mezzanine floor was teeming with customers.

Police suspected leakage in the LPG cylinder pipe had led to the fire.
