A massive fire broke out at the Aadhar Wadi dumping ground in Kalyan in Thane on Tuesday. Fourteen fire tenders and 12 water tankers were pressed into action to douse the fire.
The fire was brought under control on Wednesday. Officials claim no one has been injured in the blaze.
Local residents have been advised to stay indoors to avoid any casualties. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
Authorities continue to face flak for poor management of dumping grounds. Repeated fires at the Deonar dumping ground in Mumbai have affected normal life in the maximum city.
