Massive fire broke out in a three-storey hardware store building on Sunday afternoon in the Batamaloo area  and was only controlled after hectic efforts of firefighters for six long hours.

One vehicle has been put on standby at the spot as a precautionary measure.

An official from the Fire & Emergency department said that the fire broke out in a three-storey hardware store building.

“The news about the fire at Batamaloo was received at approximately 2 pm, following which Fire & Emergency Services personnel along with the machinery rushed to the spot and started dousing the flames,” the Division Fire Officer (DFO) Tasaduk Ahmad said.

He said the fire broke out from the top storey and later engulfed the entire building.

“It took us six long hours to douse the fire as the building contains paint, tarpin, and petroleum products, PVC pipes and other hardware items,” he said.

The officer added, “We have taken complete control over the situation, and the fire won’t spread anymore as firefighters from nineteen receiving stations are on the job. Additionally, more than twenty vehicles are dousing the flames.”

Tasaduk said the operation lasted for six long hours and one vehicle has been put on standby at the spot to avoid any uneven incident as the building contains petroleum products. (KNO)
