KARIMNAGAR, FEBRUARY 20, 2024: In a bizarre incident, a major fire broke out at Adarshanagar in Karimnagar town on Tuesday engulfing makeshift huts ad tents by the labour force. No casualties were reported so far.

Sources said that the migrant labourers residing in the tents and some of them being rag-pickers had went to Medaram Samakka-Sarakka jatara on Tuesday morning after offering prayers in the house and lighting the lamps.
