Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - NATION -

VISAKHA­P­AT­NAM: A fire broke out in Visakha­p­at­nam Steel Plant (VSP) on Fri­day af­ter­noon but no ca­su­alty was re­ported. The blaze was no­ticed in the plant’s blast fur­nace No 2 at around 1.30pm, the gov­ern­ment-run steel un­der­tak­ing said in a re­lease here. The fire was caused by mal­func­tion­ing of tuy­ers (pipe which sup­plies air blast to the fur­nace for com­bus­tion pur­pose). Sev­eral fire ten­ders were rushed to the spot and they put out the blaze within a short time, the re­lease added.
