Machinery and raw material worth lakhs of rupees was engulfed in flames after a major fire broke out at Amar Industrial Estate, Navghar in Bhayandar (East) on Sunday night around 10 pm. Fortunately, no casualties were reported.
According to the fire brigade official, the fire broke out at around 10 pm in Bhayandar (east).
It took more than three hours for around 20 fire brigade personnel, 5 water tankers and 5 fire tenders to control the blaze having intensity owing to the massive storage of inflammable substance.
The fire broke out at the Hardware manufacturing unit and spread to the neighbouring units which had inflammable substance in it.
“Although the exact reason is yet to be ascertained, prima facie it appears that an electrical short circuit might have sparked off the fire,” said fire brigade official.
Last week, the same level of fire was broke out at Pleasant Park in Mira Road.
