Over hundred shanties were

gutted in a fire at New Town, the new satellite township on the outskirts of the city, early today.

Fire brigade sources said the fire broke out at around 1:40 am in the Rajarhat-New Town police station area and engulfed the cluster of shanties.

Six fire-tenders were pressed into service to put out the flames suspected to have been caused by a short circuit, the sources said.

There was no report of any casualty or injury in the fire.
