A major incident of fire was reported from Vaishno Devi temple in Triquta hills on Tuesday afternoon.

Reports suggest that a major fire broke out in the Bhawan’s cash counting area due to unknown reasons. Fire fighting staff pressed into duty to douse the fire.

Smoke from the Bhawan could be seen from far off areas that also triggered panic among the locals as well as those who had gone to visit the Vaishno Devi temple.

Lakhs of pilgrims undertake the 14-km trek that involves a criss-cross path across the mountain-face. Pilgrims may walk up, or take palkhis (palanquins), horses or even helicopters to reach the top.
