The first fire tender arrived at the spot in five minutes of being alerted. Seven other tenders joined the fire fighting operation. There are many timber depots and other small scale units dealing with inflammable material in the vicinity. As soon as the locals alerted the fire control room, a fire tender deployed at Gandhi Hospital, Secunderabad, the nearest location, rushed to the spot. Immediately after, fire tenders from different parts of the city also joined the operation.

The building in which fire broke is distributed into three portions containing the scrap godown, wooden works unit and another godown having a large number of used cars. The scrap godown has scraps of iron at the front, and also caustic substances, known for their highly combustible nature, in the rear portion. The firefighters were only able to initiate rescue operations after the police removed all the material from the front. The firefighters also prevented the fire from spreading to the area holding the wooden items.
