Initially local volunteers from the village tried to control the blaze but failed, after which help was sought from the Indian Army.

“Responding to the outbreak of fire, two teams of army including one Quick Reaction Team rushed immediately to the site with fire fighting equipment,” army said.

“Army troops without caring for their own safety, quickly formed a human chain from the water point to the incident site.”

The fire was contained and not allowed to spread to adjacent shops, houses and trees. Meanwhile local police, fire fighting teams from fire service department and assistance from other security forces with water bowsers and other fire fighting equipment also moved to place of incident.

“Army troops paved the way for the local fire brigade and continued extinguishing the fire alongside the firefighters. After a strenuous firefight, the blaze was finally tamed at 01.15 a.m.,” the army said.

Senior Citizens of the village present also extended thanks for spirit of unity displayed by men in uniform.”  (Agency)
