Noida: A major fire broke out in two companies in Noida Sector 67 on Saturday. Several fire tenders have been rushed to the spot and a rescue operation is underway. The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.

Earlier today, a fire broke out at a market complex in Delhi's Vasant Vihar. 

The call about the blaze was received at 5 am and 10 fire tenders were pressed into service, according to an official of the Delhi Fire Services (DFS). It was brought under control within an hour.

The fire started in the ground floor of a building in Vasant Vihar's C Block Market and then spread to its mezzanine and first floors, the official said. It seems that a short circuit started the fire, officials said.

Prior to that, two days after over 100 shops were fully or partially gutted in a major fire in Delhi's Chandni Chowk area.

The fire that engulfed the Old Katra Marwadi Market on Thursday evening destroyed goods and property worth crores of rupees. Two buildings also collapsed due to the fire and water pressure.

An FIR under sections 285 and 337 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered at Kotwali police station and the matter is being investigated, the police said.

"On Thursday, around 5 pm, a PCR call was received in Katra Marwari, Nai Sarak, Chandani Chowk. Immediately police and fire teams responded. The adjoining shops were evacuated and necessary assistance was provided to the fire department to douse the fire," Deputy Commissioner of Police (north) Manoj Kumar Meena said.

The officer said the fire spread to the shops in the Katra area.

"The fire has now almost died out and around 110-120 shops have completely or partially been affected," DCP Meena said.

"The fire fighting operation is still going on. And, we have registered an FIR at Kotwali police station and investigation has been commenced into the matter.

One fireman has suffered superficial burns during the ongoing fire fighting operation," he added.

The police said the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained. The area has been barricaded and the local people have been advised to not go there, they said.
