Ghaziabad: As many as six people were injured and over 150 jhuggis were destroyed in a fire on Wednesday in Maharajpur village of the district, police said.
At least six people were injured in the fire, there have been no casualties, SP (City) Shiv Shankar Yadav said.

It is suspected that the fire was caused due to a mini-cylinder explosion in one of the jhuggis.

10 fire engines from Sahibabad, Vaishali and Ghaziabad were pressed into service to douse the flames.

ADM City Indra Vikram Singh said a list of the people affected by the blaze is being prepared and the monetary loss estimated.
