New Delhi: Fire has broken out after a cylinder blast in a building on Karawal road in Monga Nagar. Eight fire tenders have been rushed to the spot. More details are awaited.

Earlier this week, a fire had broken out at a chemical factory in Swaran Park, in Delhi’s Mundka. Fifteen fire tenders were rushed to the spot.

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 had 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.
