On Novem­ber 7, a ma­jor fire broke out in a chem­i­cal com­pany in Pawane MIDC.

The fire spread to the two other adjacent com­pa­nies caus­ing ma­jor dam­age to property. As many as 14 fire ten­ders and six wa­ter tankers were pressed into ser­vice from five fire sta­tions and it took over

14 hours to douse the fire. While there was no loss of lives, the raw ma­te­ri­als stored on the floor were de­stroyed.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, the fire was caused due to chem­i­cal spill dur­ing the re­ac­tion test­ing process. “The work­ers were trans­fer­ring chem­i­cal from one ves­sel to the other.

In the process, there was a chem­i­cal spill which is said to have caused the fire. How­ever, once an in­dus­trial unit catches fire, it is un­der the in­spec­tion of fac­tory in­spec­tor,” said Suren­dranath Chaud­hary, chief fire of­fi­cer of Thane Be­la­pur In­dus­tries As­so­ci­a­tion’s emer­gency re­sponse sta­tion, MIDC
