The fire outbreak according to him was caused by factors which could be avoided.

This fire incident was caused by factors that could have been avoided and even though emergency services were on ground promptly. The building could not be rescued due to congestion and other issues.

This experience is regrettable but we must all take the learnings. Safety awareness and practices involve everyone.

This comes after reports that a Police man was killed after the front section of the building which had caught fire yesterday collapsed on him.
