In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a massive fire broke out at the Vaishno Devi temple complex in Katra area of Jammu, today.
Officials told media that three employees of the Vaishno Devi Temple were trapped in the fire but were rescued.
Chief Executive Officer of Vaishno Devi Shrine Board, Ramesh Kumar Jangid, said the fire is under control and no person was injured. He added that the cause of the blaze is yet to be ascertained.
Officials said that the smoke appeared atop Trikuta hills, where the ancient temple is situated. Visuals show that the fire had broken out right at the center of the Vaishno Devi temple complex, which is located atop huge mountain.
The Vaishno Devi complex comprises a number of connected buildings very high up where there are numerous kitchens and sleeping halls, meant for the Hindu pilgrims who often stay overnight.—KMS
