There has been an incident of fire in a tyre scrap godown on Monday in Hiranmagri Sector 4. The godown is in Panerion ki Madri behind Yogesh tyre shop.
The fire was controlled well in time before it could reach the nearby houses. Fire brigade from Narayan Seva Sansthan and Municipal Corporation played a significant role in dousing the spreading flames. It started during day time probably due to the dry weeds. Prima facie fire first started in the weeds and then it spread over to the scrap lying close by. It could have been due to a lit up cigarette butt thrown in by someone.
There was enough commotion in the area due to fire. Fire brigade from Narayan Seva Sansthan reached the spot first followed by vehicles from Municipal Corporation. To stop the fire from spreading, water was first spread over the walls of houses. This prevented the fire from spreading and taking a disastrous turn which was a big relief.
It is really surprising that the news of fire did not reach the police stations until late night. No casualties reported so far.
