A medium category fire broke out in a paper card factory in Delhi’s Naraina Industrial Area on Thursday morning, days after a blaze at a hotel in Karol Bagh killed 17 people, news agency ANI reported.

At least 23 fire tenders are present at the factory in Phase I, ANI reported. Visuals showed huge flames leaping out of the building’s windows.

No casualties have been reported so far.

A fire, suspected to have been triggered by an electrical short circuit, swept through Hotel Arpit Palace in Karol Bagh on Tuesday morning killing at least 17 people, including a guest and the chef who tried to escape from the blaze by jumping off the five-storey building.

Three people were injured, including a woman from Myanmar who too jumped to escape the fire.
