Hyderabad: One injured as fire breaks out at workshop, four cars damaged | Hyderabad News – Times of India


HYDERABAD: Four cars were damaged in a fire accident at a car mechanic shed in Nallagandla on Sunday and one of the workers suffered burn injuries on his legs.
The car shed owner told the police that an electric short-circuit could be the reason for the mishap.
At 8am on Sunday, K Murali Krishna (32), a businessman from MIG, Huda Layout, lodged a complaint with Chandanagar police stating that fire accident occurred at his car mechanic workshop in Nallagandla, early on Sunday morning and four cars were damaged in the accident. One of the workers, N Sandeep Reddy, suffered injuries.
According to Chandanagar SI Md Ahmed Pasha, the incident happened at around 6am at the car mechanic shed operated by Murali Krishna at an open land in Nallagandla.
“Workers, N Sandeep Reddy and T Bharat, slept in the shed and at around 6am, Sandeep Reddy who was in the toilet near the cars parked in the shed, noticed flames engulfing the cars. He suffered burns on his legs while escaping through the flames,” the SI said.
Three cars parked in the shed including Murali Krishna’s sedan, and two hatchbacks of customers were gutted in the flames. Another hatchback suffered partial damage, police said.
“The workers were heating water using an immersion rod in the car shed. We suspect that shirt circuit occurred near the plug point and sparks ignited the oil and fuel on the floor,” the SI said. Firefighters put out the flames and a fire accident case has been registered.
