Fire at plastic godown in Thane

A major fire broke out in a plastic godown at Khan Compound in Shil Phata, Mumbra, on Monday night. Fire officials said no injuries have been reported due to the incident that occurred at a plastic godown where scrap plastic materials were stored.

The cause of fire is yet to be ascertained but preliminary investigations suggest a short circuit may have led to it. As a result, black smoke covered the entire area.

Santosh Kadam, officer from the Regional Disaster Management Cell said, “We received a call at around 12.30 am, after which we formed a team of fire personnel and reached the spot with four fire tenders, four water tankers and two JCB excavators. The fire was brought under control within two hours. Thereafter, we started the cooling operation.”

The entire godown was packed to the brim with plastic materials but no one was present there at the time of the fire. The fire charred the plastic materials to ashes and the excavators had to be used to clear  the place.
