Massive fire broke out at a tyre godown located in Okhla phase I area of Delhi on 11 November night. The exact reason for the incident is yet to be ascertained but it is being suggested that it happened because of a fire-cracker burst near it on Diwali.

According to TV reports, it took ten fire-brigade trucks and an hour to control the fire. It led to a chaotic situation in nearby areas too.

In another incident, a jute factory situated at Titagarh area of North 24 Pargana in West Bengal also caught fire after a fire-cracker entered its finishing department. It led to a loss of Rs 40 lakh as estimated so far.
