Several reports of fire incidents have come to light in the past few days.

Last week, at least five people were killed and 56 severely injured after a major fire broke out in the industrial area of Dombivli after a boiler blasted at the Amber Chemical Company. Following the incident, huge plumes of smoke were seen as the sound of the explosion reportedly reached as far as 3km away from the blast site.

Meanwhile, in Delhi, a massive fire broke out at the Baby Care New Born hospital in East Delhi's Vivek Vihar on Saturday and spread to two other adjacent buildings, claiming the lives of at least seven babies. While, five other babies are undergoing treatment who have received minor burn injuries.

On Monday evening, a pantograph of a Delhi Metro train caught fire at Rajiv Chowk station due to some external material getting caught between it and the overhead equipment for electrification, the DMRC said in a statement. A video of the incident also went viral on social media in which the passengers can be seen recording videos of the fire on their mobile phones.
