Ajmer (Rajasthan), May 8 (ANI): A massive fire gutted a battery factory in Rajasthan's Ajmer city.
Around eight to nine fire tenders rushed to the spot and brought the fire under control.
"The factory had a large stock of batteries and raw materials. We don't know the reason how the factory caught fire, but we reached here with all our fire tender vehicles and even called our staff from their homes. The intensity of the fire was very high but most importantly the fire did not spread to the adjacent areas," said Fire Officer Habib.
"Our motive was to control the fire as there was a godown of Ajmer gas nearby, where oxygen and carbon dioxide gases are stored. The godown might have caught fire. So our primary job was to cordon off the area and then nearly 8-9 fire tenders helped in bringing the fire under control," he added.
Raw materials and batteries worth hundreds of thousands were reportedly damaged in the fire that took place on Friday evening. (ANI)
