New Delhi (Sputnik): The blaze has been doused and a cooling process is underway as black clouds of smoke continue to erupt from the building that caught fire in Surat, a textile manufacturing and trading hub which produces 30 million metres of raw fabric daily.
In the early hours of Tuesday morning, a massive fire at a multi-storied textile market in Surat’s Saroli area destroyed goods worth millions. More than 60 firefighting vehicles were brought in to wage a five-hour battle with the blaze. There were no reports of any casualties.
