The Chilaw police headquarters state that today (12) the fire brigade attached to the Chilaw Municipal Council (MC) has doused the fire inside the two story building opposite the District General Hospital situated at Colombo road Chilaw mid-town.

The Chilaw Ananda National School is also situated nearby. A police officer who was engaged in traffic duty noticed smoke emitting from the top floor of the building immediately informed the police and the electrical engineering office.

Accordingly the electricity board’s service maintenance officials promptly arrived and disconnected the electricity connection. Afterwards the fire brigade entered and doused the fire. It is suspected that the fire has been caused due to a fault in the air conditioner.

The air conditioners, electric items and computers in the office were burnt and damaged.

The police further states that the loss has not been accounted so far but suspects a loss of more than 10 lakhs.
