Mattresses and other goods worth lakhs were reduced to ashes in a fire that broke out at a mattress showroom in Sunny Enclave on the Mohali road here this afternoon.

The fire broke out at around 2:30 pm. Five fire tenders from Mohali were pressed into service to control the blaze. Mohali Fire Officer Mohan Lal Verma, who was present at the spot, said the fire was brought under control in about two hours.

Dinesh Grover, the owner of 4 Seasons Mattresses, said he suffered a loss of about Rs 60 lakhs. He said a short circuit could have caused the fire. He said he had complained about this to the Electricity Department about 10 days ago. Kharar Sadar SHO Amandeep Singh, along with his team, also rushed to the spot. — OC
