Mumbai: Reliance Gas Transportation Infrastructure Ltd (RGTIL), a part of the Mukesh Ambani-led group, has said there was no injury or loss of life in a fire that broke out in its pipeline in Telangana following a gas leak in the main line valve on Monday.

The fire was noticed in a section of the pipeline and RGTIL experts immediately reached the war room as well as the site of the fire.

"The fire is being controlled and contained by safely evacuating and cordoning off that section of pipeline. It might take another few hours to evacuate and extinguish the fire," a spokesperson for RGTIL said in a statement issued in Mumbai on Monday.

He added that once the fire is extinguished, the valve will be isolated and after an internal investigation is conducted, normal gas flow to the downstream customers will be resumed.

Reduction or interruption of gas flow to the downstream customers is expected to last for a day.

All authorities concerned and affected customers have been informed, the spokesperson said.
