A cooling tower tower at the Jagiroad Paper Mill witnessed a massive fire on Tuesday destroying property amounting to an estimated Rs 20 crore.
It took three fire tenders to bring the fire under control but it was seen that a huge damage was already done. However, no casualties or injuries were reported during the incident.
Some locals have suspected that the fire might have been set by some “miscreants” who may have ventured into the property to steal the valuable items that are left inside due to the shutting down of the mill.
The local administration and police have already initiated an investigation into the issue and are making sure that no such thing happens in the future.
