A massive fire broke out at the market area of Changlang district in Arunachal Pradesh on Thursday evening, leaving almost nine shops gutted to ashes.

Fire brigades rushed to the spot along with a team including 14AR, CRPF, Bazar committees to douse the flames.

However, no loss of life has been reported. The exact worth of the damaged properties is yet to be determined.
