A major fire broke out in a timber factory in Hyderabad’s Musheerabad area in the early hours of Monday.
Eight fire engines have been pressed into service.
“No one is injured. Efforts are on to extinguish the fire,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central Zone) V.B. Kamalasan Reddy said.
The factory abuts a residential building. The firefighters were facing some difficulty as the area is congested, a fire brigade officer said.
An eyewitness said that the fire started at around 2 am, but the fire engines reached only at around 4.30 am, and the fire was still not out.
