Fire breaks out in Delhi’s Jhilmil area, at least 3 dead
As many as 26 fire tenders were rushed to the spot to extinguish the fire
Three people, including two women, were killed in a massive fire at a hardware factory in the national capital on Saturday, police said
As many as 31 fire tenders were rushed to the spot to extinguish the fire. The fire broke out at the factory manufacturing household tools and equipment in Shahdara’s Jhilmil industrial area around 9 am, according to fire officials
The factory is situated in a narrow lane of Jhilmil area which is making it difficult for fire trucks to reach the actual spot.
The fire officials said rescue operations were underway and they were trying to ascertain if more persons were trapped in the building
The cause of the fire is not yet ascertained. In January last year, 17 people — 10 women and seven men — were killed in a massive blaze at a firecracker storage unit in outer Delhi’s Bawana industrial area.
