Delhi Fire: The capital Delhi remains the capital of fire these days. Every day, the case of fire somewhere in Delhi keeps coming to the fore. A few days back, a fierce fire in Mundka took 26 lives. After this, today again a fire broke out in a building in a cycle market of Jhandewalan. The fire started due to a small short circuit which quickly spread throughout the building.
To control the growing fire, 27 fire tenders were present on the spot, which was constantly trying to douse the fire. When the fire broke out, the entire building was filled with customers, shopkeepers and staff. Thankfully, the fire had spread from the basement to the building above, due to which people got a chance to save their lives and get out in time.
How much is the damage caused by the fire?
Had the fire started elsewhere, then by now the goods worth lakhs would have been burnt to ashes. Children’s toys, plastic items, cycles etc. were kept inside the shop, which had turned into ashes. When the ABP team talked to the shopkeepers present on the spot, they told that each shop had goods worth 40 to 50 lakhs. The fire may not have taken anyone’s life, but it has burnt many families who were completely dependent on this shop. His life got ruined.
