Fire breaks out at JN Pharma City in Anakapalle; no casualties reported

Anakapalle: A fire broke out at the ENT Plant of SNF (India) Private Limited in JN Pharma City at Parawada in Anakapalle district on Saturday afternoon. The fire mishap has led to fear among the workers. The police said that the fire broke out in the waste chemical storage tank. No casualties or injuries have been reported in the incident.

The company is specializing exclusively in the preparation of water-soluble polymers and water and waste-water treatment and is the only leading polymer producer.

Two fire tenders were rushed to the incident site to douse the flames. The situation is almost under control and nothing to worry about, the police added.

The initial investigation into the incident revealed that a chemical reaction allegedly due to the overflow of the waste chemical from the storage tank might have been the reason for the fire-mishap. The officials from the Revenue, Police, Fire-Service personnel, and a few other departments visited the incident site.

The leaders and activists of left parties said that mishaps have been reported at JNPC-Parawada for the past few years. The management of some firms at JNPC ignored the safety of the workers by spending little money on the safety mechanism.

The police and fire-service personnel registered a case and the investigation is underway.
