Fire At Reliance Industries Plant In Vadodara Kills Three

Three people were killed in a fire that broke out in a section of the rubber plant at the Reliance Industries' complex in Vadodara on Thursday.

The blaze erupted in the polybutadiene rubber plant, the company said in a statement. Three contractual workers, who were injured in the mishap, later succumbed to injuries despite best efforts of the medical team, it said.

The fire broke out in the morning. “The fire was restricted to one section of the plant and timely action by Reliance fire fighting team helped in quickly extinguishing the fire," the company said. "Our prayers and sympathies are with their families in their time of grief and we will support the families to overcome their personal tragedy."

An investigation will be conducted to ascertain the cause of the fire, according to the statement, which said that the rest of the complex resumed normal operations.
