Officials have not confirmed the reason for the fire. However, according to Mathrubhumi, the fire was triggered by the explosion of a gas cylinder in a textile shop. The fire spread to other nearby shops before tenders reached the spot. While the situation is under control, fire is still visible on the third floor of the shops.

Mittayitheruvu is a commercial hub at the heart of Kozhikode.
