Economic Times reported that a major fire broke out at an automobile spare part manufacturing unit in Sector 3 of Manesar early on 23 April owing to a short circuit. Though no one was injured in the fire, it is suspected to have caused a damage of around INR 2 crore.

According to fire department officials, a total of 14 fire tenders from fire departments of Gurugram and Manesar were dispatched and the fire was brought under control after six hours.

As per the information, the security guard working at the automobile filter manufacturing unit had spotted fire on the ground floor, after which he called up the department. Six fire tenders from Manesar reached the spot but were unable to control the fire, after which eight more tenders were rushed from Gurugram.

Fire officer Mr Narender Yadav said the fire spread quickly due to the raw materials kept there. Mr Yadav said that “Since the company manufactures filters for automobile companies, there was lots of oil kept there due to which it took long to douse the fire,” adding that all raw materials were gutted.

Notably, in the past few years, fires have broken out at many manufacturing units in Manesar. In August 2017, a fire had broken out at a helmet manufacturing factory in Sector 8.
