A call about the fire at a shoe factory in Mongolpuri was received around 10.34 am. Twenty-five fire tenders were rushed to the spot which brought the blaze under control, they said.
A senior official of Delhi Fire Services said, "It took the fire fighters a lot of effort to control the blaze as fire safety measures were non-existent at both the factories."
In both the incidents, the employees managed to escape unhurt, he said.
Last month, a major fire at a private factory in Bawana industrial area claimed 17 lives, while two sustained serious injuries.
