Ghaziabad, Nov 3: A huge fire gutted a packaging factory in Arya Nagar industrial area here this morning forcing authorities to evacuate people from neighbouring factories.
Nearly 40 fire tenders were rushed to the spot, but the blaze escalated even after constant water pressure.
Fire services officials said, the fire escalated because of large number of combustible chemicals kept inside the factory. A foam tender has been brought from the nearby Indian Air Force station to control the blaze.
Three workers were injured in the fire. There were 40 workers working inside at that time.
