In a daring operation, the Ahmedabad Fire Brigade rescued as many as 40 people stuck in a tall merry-go-round fire at a fun fare. The incident was reported Sunday midnight.
Minutes after getting a call, the staff of the Ahmedabad Fire and Emergency Services rushed to the west end of the Sabarmati Riverfront and brought down the people stuck in the tall ride.
