A fire broke out in the Deonar dumping ground on Friday afternoon and was brought under control by the evening. However, civic officials said a complaint would be registered with the police about the incident. Officials from the Solid Waste Management (SWM) department said pocket fires were being reported at the dumpyard for the past
“Though the fire was minor, it took time to douse as the wind speed was high. This led to smoke spreading to adjoining areas. As fire
engines are stationed at the dumping ground, the blaze could be brought under control in time,” said a senior official from the SWM department.
On Friday, civic chief Ajoy Mehta reviewed the measures being undertaken at the dumping ground.
The meeting was also attended by the Rais Shaikh, corporator from Govandi area and group leader of Samajwadi Party in the BMC.
Last week too, a fire had broken out here and a police complaint was lodged suspecting foul play by miscreants.
“Fire breaking out in dumping grounds is a common phenomenon worldwide. Recently, a fire broke out in the Ahmedabad dumping ground too,” the official said. ENS
