37 houses have been completely destroyed as a result of a fire that broke out in a row of wooden houses in the Gemunupura region of Mattakkuliya.

 

Police stated that the fire was extinguished with the help of fire fighters and residents.

 

While no one was injured in the blaze, a kerosene lamp toppling over in one of the houses has been the cause of the fire.
