A fire broke out at a plastics factory in the nation’s capital’s Badli district on Sunday, a fire official said.

So far, there have been no injuries or casualties in the incident.

The official informed that they received a call regarding the fire at 2.10 a.m. at a dana plastic factory at A 69 near Haiderpur metro station in North Delhi, after which up to five calls from ‘fire tenders were immediately put into operation.

When the firefighters arrived at the scene, they found that the fire was important, following which 18 additional firefighters were gradually sent to the place.

“The firefighting operation is currently underway and 23 fire engines are on site to extinguish the flames,” the official said.

Notably, the Delhi Fire Department could be seen using a robotic machine to throw water on the fire. The machine was recently inducted in May.

The robot is equipped with water pipes and is controlled using a wireless remote control. When arriving at the scene of the fire, he can also extract the smoke thanks to his ventilation system,
