Locals while talking to KNO said that as downtown in Srinagar City is a very congested area; the fire incidents cause massive loss because of unavailability of fire stations in the area.

“We have public parks all around but we don’t have any fire stations in such congested areas. We request administration to plan for some fire stations to avoid huge losses due to fire incidents,” they said. kno
