Trichy: A massive fire broke out at a scrapyard located within the premises of the railway workshop at Ponmalai in Trichy, triggering panic among railway authorities on Monday.Fire tenders, which rushed to the yard from various places, struggled for over four hours to douse the fire.
"If the scrap had been properly disposed of periodically, this fire could have been averted," said an employee on condition of anonymity.
The yard is located about 500m away from the workshop.Fanned by the heavy wind, the fire spread swiftly all around the scrap heap.
As it was out of control, a few more fire tenders from Cantonment, Navalpattu and Lalgudi jointly put their effort to douse the fire.Since there were no buildings or raw materials around the yard, there was no such property loss, sources said.
