Udupi, Apr 30: The shelter for widows located behind UBMC church  caught fire suddenly at around 12 pm on Saturday. In this fire, the entire building including its roof, beams, some clothes etc were consumed by fire. 

The only woman who was inside the facility at the time, ran out and saved herself just in time.
This shelter houses three ladies, Celestine Salins, Gracy, and Sofia Bangera. Two among them had gone out on work, while the other lady was cooking by using firewood. Sparks from the fire reportedly fell on stack of firewood which soon turned into a huge fire.

District in-charge minister, Pramod Madhwaraj, visited the site and handed over compensation of Rs 5,000 to each of the three women. He promised to further take up with the government and try for disbursal of maximum compensation. Total loss estimated in this incident is two lac rupees. The ladies have been provided temporary shelter elsewhere.
