At least Rs. 10 lakh worth of cotton was burnt in a fire in the Cotton Corporation of India (CCI) godown in Prakasam district. This is the second such accident in two months. Two fire engines were deployed to bring the flames under control. The district joint collector and police officials visited the spot. Meanwhile, a CB-CID inquiry is on in the purchase of cotton from CCI. The fire accidents might have been triggered on purpose by suspicious elements, it is suspected.
