According to reports, there was a minor fire at the Ghazipur landfill even earlier this month because of which smoke had spread to nearby areas like Kondli village.

While no reports of burns or injuries have been reported, the fire can escalate the pollution levels in Delhi, which is one of the most polluted cities in the world.

In September, two people were killed when a portion of the landfill had collapsed. The collapsed garbage had pushed a car and three two-wheelers into a nearby canal.
