According to the information received, there is no news of any person coming in the grip of fire, nor is there any threat to anyone’s life. The shops of 5 big multi-brands have come in the grip of this fire. Due to the fire, goods worth crores kept inside the shops have been burnt to ashes.
Shops of big companies have been hit by a massive fire in Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar. 26 vehicles have reached the spot, which are trying to douse the fire.
Due to the fire in a four-storey shop located in Lajpat Nagar, five big showrooms including the showroom located on the ground have caught fire. This fire started at 10:20 in the morning, after that after some three hours of hard work, this fire could be controlled. All the five showrooms and shops have completely burnt down.
According to officials, extinguishing the fire was a bit more difficult due to the strong wind. By chance, no man came under the grip of this fire. However, goods worth crores definitely got burnt to ashes.
An eyewitness to the incident told that the building had different brands of clothes and watches which could easily catch fire. It is believed that due to some problem with an electric machine in the showroom located on the ground floor, the fire may have started, which later reached the upper floor.
Due to the fire in the building, smoke spread only up to a kilometer away. An investigation is being conducted by the fire brigade officials to know the reasons behind the fire.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has also given a statement on the fire in Lajpat Nagar. CM Kejriwal has said, “Fire vehicles have reached the spot, relief and rescue work is going on. I am constantly monitoring the situation and in constant touch with the officials of the fire department.
