Nearly 8 shops gutted in fire after blast in Nashik market

Nashik, Oct 7 (UNI) At least eight shops were gutted in a major fire that broke out following a blast, suspected due to an LPG cooking gas cylinder, in the Sharanpur Road area -- one of commercial and business centres -- of the city early on Saturday.
However, no one was injured in the incident.
The blast occurred at around 0530 hours in one of the shops in the Tibetan market, a commerical centre owned by the Nashik Municipal Corporation, due to an unidentified explosive
material stored in one of the shops, police said.
The magnitude of the blast was so harsh that many residential buildings near the market felt shocks and their window-panes were shattered.
The city police rushed to the spot on receiving information about the same with a Bomb Detection Squad, Anti-Terrorism Squad, dog squad and team of forensic experts. City police commissioner Ravindra Singal also went to the spot.
Police said though the cause of the blast has yet to be ascertained, they suspect that it could be due to a gas cylinder. as they recovered 5 to 6 LPG gas canisters from one of the shops in the market.
Police are now enquiring with each and every shop owner in the Tibetan market and are trying to find out exact reason of explosion in the shop.
No arrest has been made so far in this connection, sources added.
