KOLKATA: Two elderly brothers, who were ailing and could not walk without help, suffocated to death early on Sunday after a fire broke out inside their room following a short circuit in an electric heating pad.
She used to come around 8am and left at 9pm after feeding the two brothers.
I knew that both the occupants were elderly and unwell, and immediately alerted my husband and other residents.
Since the door was bolted from outside, we opened it and found the entire room covered in thick black smoke.
We put water on the bed and tried to wake up the two brothers.
