New Delhi: At least three people died and six others were injured when a fire broke out leading to an explosion at a food processing unit in the Narela Industrial Area in Delhi in the early hours of Saturday.

According to the Delhi Police, they received a call about the incident at nearly 3.35 am.

Fourteen fire tenders were involved to douse the blaze.

Nine persons were rescued from inside the building. They were admitted to SHRC Hospital in Narela. Three of them, identified as Shyam (24), Ram Singh (30) and Beerpal (42), were declared dead.

It is suspected that the fire accident occurred after a gas leak from one of the pipelines. The gas was supplied to burners used for roasting moong dal.

As the fire spread, it led to the overheating of the compressor, resulting in an explosion. Investigations were underway.
