New Delhi: At least three people, including two women, were killed in a massive fire at a hardware factory in the national capital on Saturday, police said.

The fire broke out at the hardware factory in Shahdara's Jhilmil industrial area around 9 am, according to fire officials.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Shahdara) Meghna Yadav said two women and a man died in the fire. The deceased were identified as Manju, Sangeeta and Shoaib, she added.

According to the fire officials, the information about the blaze was received at 9.25 am and 31 fire tenders were rushed to the spot.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal visited the site and announced Rs 5 lakh compensation to the families of the deceased in the fire at the factory.
