“When the firefighters rescued them, they were lying unconscious on the ground. They were rushed to local hospitals where they were pronounced dead by doctors. We suspect the chowmein dryer may have sucked the oxygen out of the room, leaving them asphyxiated. However, a post-mortem report would clarify everything,” Nayak said.

The deceased was identified as Arun Sahu from Berhampur and Mutha Dalai and Sunil Dalai from Kampaguda village in Mohana.
