New Delhi: Fire broke out at a chemical factory in Swaran Park, in Delhi’s Mundka, on Monday morning. Fifteen fire tenders were rushed to the spot. More details are awaited.

Police have also reached the site, said a report. As of now, there is no information on the extent of damage or any loss of lives.

In a similar way, fire had broken out in Mundka last year as well and it had taken 22 fire tenders to douse it.

Only last month, after a massive fire broke out at Arpit Palace Hotel in Karol Bagh that claimed lives of 17 persons, Delhi Fire Service conducted a fire-audit at about 380 hotels across the central Delhi area.

The Delhi government had directed the fire department to inspect buildings which are five floors or more and submit a report on their safety compliance within a week.

“Based on the directives of the state government, we have formed six teams to carry out inspections in hotels and guest houses across Karol Bagh area,” Atul Kumar Garg, Chief Fire Officer said.
