Ludhiana, August 19

A major fire broke out in a three-storey plastic godown at Kutcha No. 16 in Field Ganj on Thursday morning.

Over 50 fire tenders have been pressed into service but the blaze is yet to be controlled.

The godown is located in a thickly populated area and panic spread among the nearby shopkeepers.

The godown was locked and short circuit seems to have caused the fire.

Sources said a huge stock of polythene and disposables was stored in the godown and almost the entire stock was reduced to ashes.

Firefighters had to break open the main shutter to enter the godown.
