NIZAMABAD: Bagasse and firewood all worth about Rs.1.55 lakh was destroyed in a fire at the backyard of the Nizamabad Cooperative Sugar Factory (NCSF) at Sarangapur, 10 km away from the town on Friday morning.

The accident occurred when the Employment Guaranty Scheme coolies of Nehrunagar gram panchayat, while working on the field abutting the NCSF compound wall, lit the heap of waste and the flames spread to the plant. Since the bagasse is highly inflammable material it caught fire immediately, according to the factory Managing Director A. Muralidhar. Two fire engines which were pressed into service were fighting the fire, said the MD.
