A massive fire broke out at east Delhi’s Ghazipur landfill site on Saturday, barely a month after the filth caved in killing two people.
According to the reports, five fire tenders were at the spot and trying to distinguish the fire while no one reported injured.
The fire shall increase the pollution levels in an already smog-heavy Delhi. The pollution in Delhi last year reached its peak and a combination of smog, stubble burning and firecrackers chocked the air in the national capital.
Earlier last month, a portion of the 45 metre high garbage dump in east Delhi’s Ghazipur had collapsed due to heavy rains, killing two people and pushing a car and three two-wheelers off the road, into a canal.
The tribunal had earlier come down heavily on the AAP government and the EDMC over the landfill collapse, saying “nothing can be more humiliating than people being killed under a garbage hill.”
