A fire that erupted in Daham Mawatha, Maharagama on Sunday, March 12, destroyed three houses and a shop.

Residents in the area claimed that the efforts to douse the fire were delayed due to the lack of a Fire Department in Maharagama. However, four fire trucks belonging to the Dehiwala – Mount-Lavinia Fire Department managed to contain and extinguish the blaze.

There are also reports of damages caused to nearby houses as a result of the fire.

Meanwhile, the Grama Niladhari of the area has been instructed to provide needed facilities to the three affected families, including accommodation.
