More than 300 hutments were gutted as a fire ripped through the slum cluster in Yamuna Pushta area in east Delhi on Saturday night, fire department officials said.

The fire was of medium intensity and tore through the slums at about 2000 hours, they said.

At least 22 fire tenders have rushed to the spot; the officials said adding that the fire was doused after a 90-minute struggle.

250 hutments were gutted in a blaze in the same area on Friday, where MCD was carrying out its demolition drive against illegal structures.
