A major fire broke out today at a refinery of Hindustan Copper Limited in the Moubhandar township in Ghatsila subdivision, official sources said.

Four fire-fighters, including one each from HCL and the Uranium Corporation of India Limited (UCIL) were fighting the blaze which started at a substation, the sources said.

Though the exact reason for the fire could not be ascertained, it was suspected that a transformer burst igniting the blaze, the sources said.

There was no casualty, they said.

HCL sources told PTI that the fire was yet to be brought under control and the extent of damage yet to be assessed.
