A major fire broke out at a helmet-manufacturing factory in Sector 8, Manesar, on Tuesday morning.
No one was injured in the incident and the fire department officials suspect the fire originated from a short circuit.
The fire department received information about the blaze at the factory of Avon Biwheeler Accessories Pvt Ltd around 8.30am.
Since Manesar is an industrial area fire incidents are frequent there. A total of nine fire tenders from the fire departments in Gurgaon, Manesar and Maruti were dispatched and the fire was brought under control by 12.30pm.
As the fire took place early morning, most workers were not present in the factory.
“The first and ground floor of the factory were gutted and material worth of lakhs of rupees were burnt. We were able to prevent the fire from spreading to the basement and curtail further damage,” Sukhbir Yadav, assistant fire officer, Gurgaon, said.
Fire department officials said they are examining the extent of damage from the owners and are verifying whether they had procured a no objection certificate from the fire department and received a fire safety clearance.
On May 29, 2016, a major fire had broke out at the Manesar plant of Subros Limited, manufacturer of air conditioners and transport refrigerator systems. The plant is located near the site of Tuesday’s incident. The Subros plant was opened in March.
A fire also broke out an auto manufacturing plant in Sector 4, Mansear, on June 16, 2015. It took 22 fire tenders nearly seven hours to douse the flames.
