A video from the incident went viral on social media, showing thick plumes of smoke surrounding high-rise buildings in the Lotus Boulevard Society.

Witnesses said that people living in nearby apartments evacuated their flats as soon as they witnessed the smoke and gathered in the common area of the society as a precautionary measure.


Chief Fire Officer Pradeep Kumar Choubey said locals and society residents alerted the fire service unit about the incident in the flat on the 10th floor of the building at 10.10 am.

“We immediately rushed five vehicles (water tenders) to the spot. But before our vehicles could reach there, the firefighting systems installed in the society managed to put out the fire within 10 minutes,” he said.

“The fire was triggered by a blast in the AC (air conditioner). Since the firefighting systems like sprinklers, extinguishers, hoses, were working fine, the fire did not spread out much and was contained in one room (of the flat),” Choubey said, adding that there was no loss of life or injury to any person in the episode.

Upon receiving the first call, five fire tenders immediately rushed to the spot of the incident and extended all efforts to douse the fire. The flame was successfully controlled through the fire department without any major damage to the structure of the building.
