Four girls have been killed due to a massive fire in a wooden house near Tyuni bridge in the Dehradun district. On investigation, it has been found that on Thursday evening, an LPG cylinder exploded, leading to a massive fire outbreak in a four-story wooden house.
Fire Kills 4 Girls in Dehradun District.
At that time, four girls, Sejal, Mishti, Sonam, and Riddhi, all between the ages of 3 years – 10 years, were there sleeping in the house. Someone called the fire department around 04:30 PM on Thursday, and fire tenders reached the location after some time and tried to douse the fire, but they ran out of water and could not control the fire for a long time.
As per the locals, if the fire tenders would not run out of water initially and didn’t waste their time refilling their tanks, then they could have gained control over the fire and this mishappening should have been avoided. One local claims that very precious time has been lost, and fire becomes too intensive and leads to more damage.
One of the Congress MLAs from Dehradun has expressed his condolences and said that the government should provide some compensation and help to the families of the deceased due to this massive fire outbreak in Dehradun.
