A major tragedy was prevented in national capital Delhi after the fire services personnel rescued 40 people from a burning building.
The call about a major fire in Krishna Nagar in East Delhi was received by the Delhi Fire Services at 2:10 am. “This time we got right information and sent adequate fire tenders. The building comprised of four storeys. Plastic waste material was stored in the ground floor and people were living on the upper floors, and there was only one staircase,” said Atul Garg, Director, DFS.
Fire tenders reached very quickly and started opening the exits simultaneously.
“This time all the people went on the terrace and rescue operation was easy compared to other incidents of fire,” he said. Delhi has witnessed a series of fire-related incidents in the last few days in which many lives have been lost.
