Both husband and wife in a family died in a fire that occurred at Segle Lamjung Marsyangdi Rural Municipality-9, Lamjung district last night. The victims have been identified as Dharma Raj Bhandari (56) and his spouse Pashupati Bhandari (45).

Information on this incident was shared by the head constable at Khudi Police Post, Uttam Gurung. "Although the reason behind the fire is not ascertained, it is learned that both of them were alcoholics and used to operate a gas stove," Gurung said, adding that both of them had returned home from the rehabilitation center two weeks back. A gas leak may also be the cause, according to him.

The house, made up of mud and stone with zinc sheet roof turned into ashes with the blaze. The human settlement is sparse there, the police added.

The police further said they could not reach the incident site on time because they were informed too late. Detailed information on the loss is awaited.
