A fire that broke out at Faces lounge in Thamel last night around 10 :30 was brought under control this morning. The fire that engulfed the building for nine hours also destroyed the popular Pligrims Book House that is housed in the same building and the adjacent Sisha Cafe and Terrace Bar and other shops.

It took more than nine hours for firefighters from Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur to douse the blaze that is believed to have destroyed property worth millions of rupees.  There have been no reports of serious injuries.

The cause of the fire is yet to be confirmed.
