The fire that broke out at a 4-storey chemical store in Katubedda, Moratuwa this morning has been doused.

The fire was doused by the Moratuwa Municipal Council, while additional assistance was also called in to help douse the fire.

15 fire trucks, including those from Dehiwela, Colombo and Moratuwa Fire Brigades and the Ratmalana Air Force Fire Brigade Unit, were dispatched to put out the fire that broke out around 3am.
