Port Blair, Sept 13: A major fire accident was reported at the Andaman Pencil Wood Works company situated at Prothrapur junction, in the midnight of 09th September 2020. The fire had not only caused major loss to the company but had also caused damages to the residence nearby.
It has come to the knowledge of the Member of Parliament that while the A & N Police Fire Services had diverted all stations to control the fire, there were many other unsung heroes without whom it would not have been possible to control the fire from spreading in the nearby residential areas.
There were local youths volunteers who had come forward and braved throughout the night and ensured that residential accommodation could be saved with minimum damage. The Member of Parliament also takes this opportunity to acknowledge the services of MSS Water Suppliers.
