A mi­nor fire broke out at the dis­trict trans­port of­fice here on Satur­day.

Records per­tain­ing to driv­ing li­cence were kept in the DTO of­fice.

The em­ploy­ees present in the room rushed out of the room, as the room filled with the smoke.

The em­ploy­ees doused the fire with ex­tin­guish­ers. Later, they locked the room.

Ac­cord­ing to the em­ploy­ees, the fire broke out when they were en­ter­ing data into the com­puter.


Short cir­cuit is said to be be­hind the in­ci­dent.

Lo­cals called the fire brigade, but the em­ploy­ees of the DTO of­fice doused the flames be­fore the fire brigade reached the spot.


It has been learnt that the then joint com­mis­sioner of the Lud­hi­ana mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion, Kuldeep Singh, had passed the pro­posal to es­tab­lish a fire sta­tion at the mini sec­re­tariat in the mu­nic­i­pal house.

As there is no fire sta­tion on the Ferozepur road, the of­fi­cers had planned to de­ploy one fire ten­der at the mini sec­re­tariat in case of any fire mishap. How­ever, noth­ing has been done in this re­gard so far .
