A massive fire was reported on Tuesday evening from a dump yard beside a sewage treatment plant, located at Mohan Nagar Link Road, causing pollution. Residents of Ahinsa Khand II, including Divyansh Pratham and other high-rises are severely affected by the smoke emanating from it.
Without making any delay, the fire brigade was called but its vehicle took some time to reach the spot. The blaze was so huge that the fire tender had to refill its water tank twice, yet they could not contain the fire and went thrice after it went out of water.
Looking at its magnitude, it was obvious to assume that an individual or a group of people might have carried out this activity but the home guard, deployed to surveillance the premises of dump yard, had something else to say in this regard.
Talking to City Spidey, home guard Ayyub Khan claimed that the fire must have occurred due to the high temperature of the atmosphere. He denied of someone entering the dumping ground and doing such a thing.
"I am deployed here from afternoon 2 pm to 10 pm in the night. I don't see anyone igniting the fire in the dump yard," Khan stated.
Meanwhile, City Spidey also spoke to one of the officials of the fire department. This is what he had to say -
Claims are many but several serious questions arise following this incident- Who all are involved in it? Why the civic body concerned is not taking the matter seriously if it is being done almost daily and otherwise? Is this the only way to dispose of such huge piles of garbage or are there more to discard it?TAGS: Ghaziabad news on City Spidey / local news on City Spidey / massive fire at dump yard / Mohan Nagar Link Road / GDA / fire officials / fire tenders / pollution / smoke / garbage / waste / home guard / fire department / civic issue
