Fire strikes at the Ambika Cold Storage of Dehgam. The fire was so massive that it became necessary to call fire fighters from Ahmedabad. More than 50 officials arrived at the spot with more than 14 fire vehicles. The cold storage had approximately 50 thousand sacks of spices such as turmeric, red chillies, etc. Looking at the seriousness of the accident local police, mamlatdar, and other officials reached the spot.
The officials faced many problems to control the fire and one main reason behind this trouble was lack of water. The spot where fire took place did not have any water source. The officials also had to demolish the wall as it was very high for the water force to reach. There was no fire safety measures in the cold storage as well.
