Vamanjoor: A massive fire started at Pachanady dumping yard after the waste there caught fire on Wednesday afternoon Jan 23rd. The fire personnel stared an operation to douse the fire which did not come under control even until evening.

The fire was seen at around 2 pm in the afternoon on the left side of the dumping yard and as the evening came in, the fire only gathered force and tongues of flams could be seen leaping out into the sky. There was thick smoke everywhere and foul smell started dominating the surroundings here.

There is suspicion that some miscreants might have started the fire. As soon as the fire was witnessed, the locals immediately informed the fire personnel. The fire brigade rushed to the location and using 4-5 engines, started the operation to douse the fire. Since the fire did not come under control even as the evening crept in, private water tankers continued the work on bringing the fire under control.

Since there is loads of garbage here, chemicals might have got accumulated leading to the creation of gases. Hence, only the use of water may not bring the fire under control, informed the locals.
