The fire was confined to a godown, about 5,000 sqft in size, on the second floor of the three-storied building. The place had an electric wing, wooden partitions, raw material for shampoos, packaging material, fridge, AC and pharmaceutical goods. A shampoo production and packaging unit used run from the building in which several LPG cylinders were stored. Six cylinders reportedly exploded, causing a part of the building’s wall to collapse. Thick smoke billowed from the godown till late in the evening. Eight fire engines along with seven jumbo tankers, two quick response vehicles and a rescue van were rushed to the spot among others.
