Noida, June 3 : A major fire broke out in an industrial unit in Noida on Tuesday.
The fire broke out at 7 a.m. and engulfed the factory that manufactures electronic meters.

Other vehicles are on their way and we hope to control the fire in a couple of hours," said R. K. Chaturvedi, Senior Superintendent of Police, Noida.
