A fierce fire erupted in a building in Sector-63’s H Block on Saturday, engulfing a parked car and reducing it to ashes. The blaze required the efforts of half a dozen fire brigade trucks to bring it under control.

As temperatures soar, incidents of fires have been on the rise in Noida. Despite the intense heat and challenging conditions, the fire brigade managed to control the fire after considerable effort. Both police and fire brigade teams are set to investigate the cause of the fire once it is fully extinguished.
