Aurangabad: Twelve people, including six children, were charred to death on Friday in a fire at a house in Bihar’s Aurangabad.

The incident took place in Hari Nagar tola when the fire from a nearby house engulfed Jagta Ram's residence trapping his family members, who had gathered for a social function, District Magistrate Kamal Tanuj said.

 

Twelve people — six children, two women and four men were burnt to death in the blaze, he said.

It was, however, not clear what caused the fire in the nearby house.
