Bhubaneswar: A major fire has engulfed the Lingaraj Biscuit Factory at the Infocity in Patia area of the city since last night.
While 12 fire vehicles have been pressed into services, yet the fire has not yet been brought under control in the three-storied building. The fire personnel are still struggling to douse the fire.
According to information, the fire spread at around 2 pm last night. As it was Sunday, the factory was closed. Only security men were guarding the incident. The Bhubaneswar Sub-Collector has already visited the spot.
Assets worth lakhs of rupees have already been reduced by now.
Though exact reason behind spread of the fire was yet to be ascertained, it is suspected that short circuit might be the reason behind the incident.
