 TEZPUR, Nov 16 – A devastating fire gutted 10 houses in Garowanpatti locality here last night. The loss caused by the fire is estimated to be Rs 80 lakh. The patients of a nearby private nursing home had to be evacuated for safety.

Meanwhile, several areas like Dhanoanagar, Garowanpatti and parts of Ward No.5 of Tezpur were submerged following morning showers.
