In February, another factory caught fire in Naraina
Unfortunately, this is not the first such incident.
In February, another massive fire was reported from the same area. A greeting card factory got engulfed in smoke after the switchboard caught fire. Soon, flames spread across other parts of the multi-storeyed building.
In the same month, Karol Bagh's Arpit Palace caught fire due to short-circuit. 17 people, including three members of a family, died.
Establishments have shown complete disregard for fire safety
In both the cases, rules were broken. While the hotel had a license from the fire department, it ran a rooftop restaurant. The emergency exit of the hotel was mostly closed and sealed windows made escape difficult for inmates.
When the factory caught fire, officials didn't inform the fire department immediately which meant the blaze couldn't be contained soon.
