Huge fire destroys New Astoria hotel in Hyderabad

A massive fire broke out at Hotel New Astoria near RTC crossroads, destroying the famous restaurant which was a favourite haunt among denizens in the city. M Srinivas Reddy, district fire officer, said two fire-tenders rushed to the spot, from Musheerabad and Secretariat, but failed to save the building from the raging fire that could have been triggered by a short circuit.

"While the fire erupted in the first-floor, there were a few embers which went all the way to the third-floor," he said. He also pointed out that the fire department was informed half-an-hour after the mishap. Incidentally, the complex which housed the restaurant, also accommodated a boy's hostel, whose inmates were immediately evacuated by the fire department.
