Ludhiana: Hosiery unit in residential area gutted

October 25, 2017 06:08 PM
Owners of the factory in a state of shock as the fire rages at the unit.

Ludhiana, October 25 - In a major fire reported in the Ranjit Singh Park area at the back of Shingar Cinema early morning today, a hosiery unit of GEE Ess Knitwears was gutted. The entire three-storey building was gutted and stocks and machinery worth several lakhs were reduced to ashes.

 

There was no staff at the factory when the fire broke out. The roof of one of the rooms on the third floor collapsed.

 

Although a short-circuit was stated to be the cause of fire, fire officials said it was too early to comment on the cause of fire. As the hosiery unit was located in the residential area, the officials got adjoining houses vacated to avoid any tragedy.

 

A huge stock of woollens, finished and raw material, was kept in the building to meet winter demand.


The incident was reported at around 5.30 am when the factory watchman noticed smoke billowing out of the building. He raised the alarm and informed the hosiery owners. The owners reached there and tried to remove the stock. But owing to the lack of fire safety arrangements at the building, they failed in their attempt, a fire official said. Meanwhile, workers said a huge quantity of finished products was lying in the building.

 

15 fire engines sprayed over 1 lakh litres of water

 

The Ludhiana fire station, which has a total of 15 fire engines, pressed all of these into service. Each fire engine was reportedly refilled several times. These fire engines sprayed over 1 lakh litres of water to douse the flames. The fire was completely put out in over eight hours.

 

Residents want shifting of units from residential area

 

Since the factory was situated in the residential area, residents said the hosiery unit and other factories situated in the Ranjit Singh Park area should be shifted to an alternative site. Had the fire spread to the adjoining buildings, there would have been a tragedy, a resident said.
