According to the source, at around the time of the incident, people living in the neighborhood saw smoke coming from the windows of the guest house. The local people immediately assisted with two fire extinguishers, but there was more and more smoke, so they reported the fire to the local police, asking them to bring fire protection assistance. Four fire trucks came to the scene and the blaze was extinguished at 9:15 pm on the same evening.

The fire is believed to have been started by faulty electric wiring, and fortunately there was no danger to anyone, only some damage to mattresses and furniture from smoke and water.
