Fire at battery manufacturing unit

Fourteen fire tenders rushed to the spot and put off the fire after nearly five hours. However, no one was injured in the accident, said fire force officials.

Officials said, a few workers at American Power Conversion India Limited heard a loud sound followed by thick smoke and flames. All of them rushed outside and alerted the fire force. Initially, ten fire tenders were pressed into service.

The officials decided to send four more due to intensity of the flames. Electric short circuit is stated to be the cause for the mishap. Total loss is yet to be ascertained, the officials added. The unit officers had not taken proper fire safety measures, the officials added.
