A fire broke out in Delhi's Lajpat Rai Market, burning 56 stores
Fire broke near the Red Fort's market, no casualties reported
At around 4.45 a.m., a large fire broke out in the Lajpat Rai Market in front of the Red Fort in the country's capital, Delhi. The fire has devoured 58 stores in the market. Twelve fire tenders arrived on the scene as soon as the fire was reported. Efforts are being made to put out the fire.
The cause of the fire, however, has yet to be determined. The Delhi Fire Service (DFS) reports that no one has been injured in the Lajpat Rai market fire. Previously, around a month ago, three huts in Delhi's Neb Sarai neighbourhood caught fire. 23 fire department vehicles responded to the scene as soon as the issue was reported, and after 3 to 4 hours of hard work, the fire was brought under control.
According to fire officials, the severity of the fire can be determined from the fact that the Delhi Fire Service classified the fire in the Neb Sarai region as "serious." A property in the capital's GB road district had previously caught fire late at night. The accident resulted in the death of one individual. Upon getting the information, six fire tenders hurried to the scene. After tremendous effort, the fire was brought under control.
