A police personnel noticed smoke emanating from the parked cars and immediately informed the fire brigade. The firefighters used 10k litres of water to douse the flames completely. Several cars had been parked there for a long time as part of different cases, and seven of them were damaged in the fire. Additional DCP Alok Kumar Sharma said that ACP Malharganj Vivek Singh Chauhan will investigate the matter to know the exact circumstances under which the fire occurred.

While the exact causes of these fires are still under investigation, preliminary reports suggest that a short circuit at the kachori shop and undetermined causes at the police station played significant roles in the rapid escalation of these incidents.

Lesson in Fire Safety:

These fire incidents in Indore serve as a stark reminder of the ever-present risk of fire hazards and the critical importance of robust fire safety measures across all establishments, be they residential, commercial, or official premises.

Preventive Measures:

To prevent such catastrophic events, it is imperative to implement stringent fire safety protocols and adhere to industry best practices. Some key preventive measures include:

  • Conducting thorough fire risk assessments and audits regularly.
  • Proper storage, handling, and disposal of combustible materials as per fire code regulations.
  • Installing comprehensive fire protection systems, including fire alarms, smoke detectors, and sprinklers.
  • Ensuring effective compartmentalization through fire-rated doors, walls, and partitions to contain fire spread.
  • Maintaining clear and unobstructed evacuation routes and emergency exits.
  • Providing adequate fire extinguishers and training personnel in their proper usage.
  • Developing and implementing a comprehensive fire safety plan with regular drills and staff training.

Benefits of Fire Safety:

While the initial investment in fire safety measures may seem substantial, the advantages of robust fire protection systems far outweigh the costs.
