Four people have died and 15 injured during a fire at a pesticide manufacturing factory in Cuddalore today. All the injured people have been rushed to a nearby government hospital.

"Strict action will be taken against factories and companies that don't take steps to control accidents,"  State Minister CV Ganesan told ANI.

On Wednesday too, a fire broke out in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr industrial area in which two factories were gutted, officials said, adding that no casualties were reported. Smoke coming out from a menthol manufacturing unit was spotted by the watchman who called the owner Manoj Gupta following which the police and the fire department were informed. 

Meanwhile, on May 1, a fire had broken out at a hospital in Gujarat's Bharuch in the wee hours of Saturday, May 1, claiming the lives of at least 18 coronavirus patients who died due to the resultant smoke.

Heart-wrenching visuals of the mishap showed the remains of some patients on beds and stretchers. There were around 50 other patients at the four-storeyed Welfare Hospital when the tragedy struck, reported PTI.
