A fire broke out tonight at a factory in west Delhi’s Udyog Nagar area, following which more than 25 fire tenders were pressed into service, officials said. “We received a call at 07:27 pm after which firefighting teams were rushed,” a Delhi Fire Department official said. “Twenty-five fire tenders have been sent, so the blaze is presumably big. The cause of the fire is not immediately known,” he said.
Earlier on Sunday, a fire broke out in a slum area in southeast Delhi’s Sriniwaspuri leaving four persons severely injured. According to a Delhi Fire Services officer, a call was received at 7:05 pm about the incident. Four fire tenders were rushed to the spot and the fire was doused by 7:30 pm. The blaze started due to LPG leakage, he said.
