Massive fire breaks out at mattress godown in Indian capital”

A fire broke out in a godown in Mundka here on Thursday morning.

In a similar incident in Delhi's Bawana, 17 persons had lost their lives after fire engulfed a firecracker factory last week. People present in the factory during the incident were evacuated in time. During firefighting operations, the godown crumbled and the upper portion of the processing unit collapsed.

A short-circuit in electrical wiring in the factory was suspected to be the primary cause of the fire, which later spread to the warehouse. About 70 workers in the godown also moved out. The fire broke out due to a short circuit. At least 30 fire tenders were rushed to the spot to douse the fire.

"We had called for a ladder-fitted fire engine to douse the fire on the first floor of the factory but its movement in the narrow lanes was hard".

Speaking to The Indian Express, Chief Fire Officer Atul Garg said two of his men sustained minor injuries on their hands and leg while trying to contain the fire.

The police said a case has been registered under relevant sections. They called police and the fire department and vacated the premises.
