Fire in chemical factory

Press Trust of India  |  Ambala 

A major fire broke out in a

chemical factory at village Mandour close to Ambala City late tonight, leaving a fire-fighter injured.

No causalty was reported but one firefighter was injured in the fire.

Around two dozen fire tenders from Ambala Cantonment, Air Force, Army, Yamunanagar, and Panchkula controlled the flames after a three-hour struggle.

The houses adjacent to the factory were directed to vacate as a precautionary measure as several drums of chemicals exploded in the factory, which created panic among the villagers.
