Drinking water pipes gutted in Bagbera fire accident

Jamshedpur: PVC pipes worth over Rs 2 lakh were gutted in a fire mishap at Hari Bagan area under Bagbera police station on Friday. 

Initial investigation suggests that the heap of pipes caught fire as it was kept on a pile of municipal garbage.

The pipes were supposed to be laid down for drinking water supply in the densely-populated Bagbera Colony. 

Local residents noticed the fire at around 12:15pm and informed the Bagbera police.

A fire tender reached the spot in an hour, but by that time the whole lot of pipes were completely gutted. 

According to an official of the fire station, the spot was about seven kilometre away from the fire station and the fire tender had to naviagate through narrow and congested roads of the adjoining densely-populated Jugsalai area. 

The OC of Bagbera thana, Rajesh Kumar Singh said the pipes were kept there for a fortnight. 

"The department of Rural Drinking Water Supply had dumping the pipes on a heap of garbage.  As it is a season of scorching sun, leading every thing exposed to the sun to getting dry, someone might have dropped a burning cigarette on the garbage heap, thus triggering the fire, "said Singh to The Telegraph Online.
