A major fire broke out at an ancillary unit of the Vendors Park in the premises of the Tata Nano plant near Sanand, about 35-kilometers from Ahmedabad, on June 16 afternoon. No casualty has been reported.
According to Rajesh Bhatt, chief fire officer of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation, fire broke out in Supreme Industries. It is one of the many ancillaries of the Tata Nano plant.
The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained and so is the damage. The probable cause of the fire is short circuit.
Sources, however, claimed that production at the Plant site remained unaffected.
Tata Nano plant was shifted from West Bengal to Sanand during Narendra Modi’s tenure as Gujarat Chief Minister when the locals objected to the Plant in Singur.
