On Monday morning, a huge fire broke out in Delhi's footwear factory at Narela Industrial Area. At least 15 fire tenders rush to control the flames, authorities said.

According to a fire officer, the blaze broke out on the ground floor of the factory at 9.30am. Atul Garg, chief fire officer, Delhi Fire Services, said the blaze spread to the entire ground floor within minutes. The trigger behind the blaze is yet to be known, he said.

“No casualties have been reported so far. The fire tenders are dousing the blaze and the situation is under control,” another fire official said.

The cause of this massive fire is still not clear, the rescue operation is underway. The incident took place a day after a person died after a fire broke out at a garment manufacturing unit in Karol Bagh area.

There are several factories in the Narela industrial area and in Bawana area that are operated illegally and have no safe safety arrangments to deal with the fire blaze.
