Lamjung District, Nepal – In a devastating incident, a residential house in Syage, Marsyangdi Rural Municipality-4, Lamjung district, caught fire last night, resulting in the tragic loss of a life. Santamaya Shrestha, a 44-year-old woman, succumbed to the flames that engulfed the house, as confirmed by local authorities.

Rajendra Shrestha, the victim’s husband and aged 45, narrowly escaped the inferno by fleeing from the house, according to Police Inspector Thaneshwor Chapain from the District Police Office.
