A major fire broke out in a forested area behind Rajghat in central Delhi on Thursday morning.

No casualties were reported in the incident which took place around 10.40 AM. As many as 10 fire tenders were rushed to the spot to contain the fire and the operation lasted for hours, a fire official said.

“The fire could have been caused by the hot and dry weather conditions. However, the exact cause can be known after an assessment following the cooling operation,” fire and police officials said.

No casualties were reported in the incident which took place around 7.30 AM. Three fire tenders were rushed to the spot to douse the flame.
