Guwahati: Three major fire incidents gutted a plactic factory, damaged a three-stroeyed building and injured a woman here on Sunday, police said.

A plastic factory was gutted in the industrial estate here destroying property worth lakhs of rupeesthis afternoon.

A short-circuit in an electrical transformer in the estate caused the fire and as the blaze intensified, it engulfed a 70,000-litre diesel factory inside the factory.

It took eight fire brigades over three hours to control the flame. None was injured as the factory was closed on Sunday today.

Another fire damaged a three-storeyed building which housed a private boys hostel following a short-circuit here. A woman was injured in the fire.

Five huts and a shop were gutted in another fire in the city's Anandnagar locality, but nobody was injured.
