Workers taking out goods from the fire that broke out in Punjab Plywood Factory.
A fire broke out at a plywood manufacturing factory in Gadaipur, adjacent to the focal point, this morning. There was no loss of life due to the fire, but the raw and finished goods were burnt to ashes along with the machinery worth lakhs in the factory. The cause of the fire is not yet known. This incident of fire has come to the fore in Gadaipur’s street number four.
As soon as the workers working in the factory came to know about the fire, they first started extinguishing the fire at their own level. When the fire got out of control, the fire brigade was informed. As soon as the information was received, fire brigade vehicles immediately reached the Punjab Plywood Factory and they started throwing water sprays on the flames to douse the fire. But as soon as the water showers stopped, the flames were coming out again.
Fire brigade employees say that the flames are coming out because the chemical used to make plywood is very flammable. Due to water the flames are extinguished from above but the fire comes out from below. The wood fire lying in the factory has been extinguished but still it is slowly smoldering.
