Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Terror gripped Bhopal’s Beg Mughaliya area after 4 back to back explosions erupted in the Vyanjan tent house in which around 100 LPG cylinders were kept, on Friday. The incident occured around 10 in the morning. Fortunately, no lives were lost in the incident.

According to Bhopal Municipal Corporation's Pankaj Khare, "There were 100 LPG cylinders kept in the godown. As many as 15 of the cylinders blew off."

Acting on the incident, 10 fire brigade vehicles rushed to the spot immediately and controlled the fire in almost 1.5 hours. Workers of the warehouse already managed to evade the site safely. Also, a JCB was required to make a path to help the fire brigade to the spot. 

According to eyewitnesses, the fire first broke out in curtains and other clothing items. That time more than 5 employees present in the warehouse tried to extinguish it. During this, 3 gas cylinders exploded one after the other. The employees saved their lives by running away from the spot immediately. The tin shed of the godown fell about 50 feet away.
