A major portion of an automobile air conditioners manufacturing factory was gutted on Sunday in a fire, a fire officer said. No casualty was reported in the incident.
Over a dozen fire tenders were pressed into service after the fire was reported at Subros company in Sector 8 of Industrial Model Township (IMT) about 2.30pm.
A fire officer said around 200 workers were present when the fire broke out at the company premises, in the vicinity of Maruti Udyog Limited.
The cause of the fire could not be ascertained immediately.
While the company officials said it was due to an electrical short-circuit, several factory workers said the fire was sparked by a leak from a commercial liquefied petroleum gas cylinder.
