This is the second fire that broke out in a factory within 2 days in Delhi.
About 27 people were reported to have been killed in a four-storey building in Mundka that caught on fire on Friday evening. As per the reports, the fire broke out on the first floor of the building near Mundka metro station which is the office of a CCTV and router manufacturing company.
The Mundka building which didn’t have NOC from the Fire Department had a single entry and exit point, which could explain the reason for the high number of casualties, a senior fire department official said on Saturday.
