In recent months, a string of unfortunate accidents involving fire has dominated headlines in India. While most of these resulted in simple property damage, some led to injuries and loss of life, adding to the negativity people already feel about 2020.

A major fire broke out on Thursday morning at a shoe sole-making Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) factory in Delhi's DSIDC Narela industrial area.

PVC is a plastic polymer widely used as an essential component in the manufacture of several products like shower curtains, water pipes, and soles for footwear. 

There was, however, no immediate report of causalities from the fire.

Talking to Sputnik, Atul Garg, Chief of the Delhi Fire Service, revealed 25 fire engines have been pressed into service to douse the fire and ensure the flames do not spread in the industrial area.

Frightening videos from the location have gone viral on social media. Take a look.
