In another incident in Northwest Delhi’s Pitampura, a 10-storey residential building caught fire on Thursday. Fire officials confirmed that over a 100 people were rescued safely and none of them were injured. It took 15 fire fighters to tender the flames that broke out on the fifth-floor of the building.
Ajit Chaudhary, a resident of the building, called the Delhi fire service immediately after he sensed smoke coming out of the hall. Chaudhary’s house allegedly caught fire because of a short circuit in the air conditioner. The house suffered major losses in the fire.
