In a shocking incident, a massive fire broke out at Mapusa Morod opposite Bodgeshwar temple, leaving the local community in a state of panic and chaos. The cause of the fire is still unknown, but fire personnel suspect it to be a result of foul play. The raging fire started to spread rapidly, engulfing the dry grass in the field and fuelled by the scorching hot sun. 

According to reports, the fire started at Mapusa yard and quickly spread to Morod Mapusa sub-registrar, covering an estimated area of 2 to 3 thousand square meters. Fire personnel had to face numerous challenges to control the inferno, mainly due to the challenging environmental conditions. The high intensity of the fire and dry weather made it difficult for the firefighters to douse the flames.

The situation was so dire that it required the deployment of two fire brigades, along with the joint efforts of fire personnel and Mapusa police. The authorities worked tirelessly for hours on end, trying to bring the situation under control and prevent further damage to the surrounding areas. Despite their best efforts, the flames continued to rage, causing widespread destruction.

The incident has left the residents of the nearby areas in shock and fear, with many seen struggling to put out the fire on their own. The thick smoke and intense heat have made it challenging for people to even approach the site, let alone extinguish the fire. The fire has caused significant damage to the local landscape, leaving a trail of destruction in its path.

Local residents blame the authorities, for the lack of safety measures and protocols in place to prevent such emergencies. Residents also said that the Municipality should not allow any migrants to stay in this open area and relocate them to safer places.
