A major fire broke out at a chemical factory in Delhi’s Naraina area on Monday. 30 fire tenders have been rushed to the spot to douse the blaze. No casualty has been reported yet.

The cause of the blaze is not yet known, which was reported around 11:30 am.

BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi in a tweet claimed that no fire hydrants were installed in the factory.


Fire hydrant, also called a fireplug, is a connection point by which firefighters can tap into a water supply. It is a component of active fire protection.

On April 25, a massive fire had broken out at a chemical factory in Shahdara’s Jhilmil industrial area in Delhi.

In March, a major blaze was reported at a chemical factory located at Swaran Park in west Delhi’s Mundka.

Earlier in January, a fire broke out at a chemical factory in the Okhla industrial area in southeast Delhi.

None of these incidents reported any injury or casualty.

However, in February, at least 17 people died after a massive blaze engulfed the top floors of central Delhi’s hotel, Arpit Palace.
