Eight fire tenders were pressed into service, and after four hours, fire was doused completely. “Fire had spread massively at the warehouse and a few drums exploded while I was trying to call the fire department. On lookers rushed to the spot and started to douse the fire. Fire tenders came in soon,” said Nagendra, an eye witness.

The oil stock stored at the warehouse was illegal,  and the owner of the warehouse is absconding. No casulties were reported in the incident,” the officials said.
