Chandigarh Police swiftly responded to the incident, providing vital assistance in managing the situation. 
The relentless fire left the factory severely charred and reduced to ruins.
MPS Chawla, President of the Chandigarh Industrial Association, recounted the early moments of the crisis, stating, “Chandigarh Industrial Association President MPS Chawla said that around 7:30 in the morning we received the news from the watchman that there was a fire in the factory. Fire brigade vehicles were called to the spot”.
“There were furniture items inside the factory due to which the fire broke out. As far as we know, 20 to 25 fire brigade vehicles have reached the spot so far. Because there is a chemical factory behind this factory and a pharma company on the other side, if it had gone later today, it could have taken a catastrophic form due to the fire breaking out in these companies, but the fire brigade vehicles that reached the spot have brought the fire under control”, added Chawla.
Chawla continued despite continuous efforts of fire brigade personnel, the fire has still not been controlled.
Further details awaited
