New Delhi: A massive fire broke out in the early morning hours of Monday in a rubber warehouse in Delhi's  Keshav Puram area.

As many as 20 fire tenders were rushed to the spot to bring the blaze under control and it took them several hours to finally douse the flames. No injuries were reported.

This is the third major fire incident in the city in under a week. Three persons had died in a major fire that had broken out in a rubber factory in Jhilmil Industrial Area just last Saturday. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had visited the site of the accident and has also announced a compensation of Rs 5 lakh each for the families of the deceased.

Prior to this, fire had broken out inside a government-run Employees State Insurance Model Hospital at Basai Darapur. Six patients were eventually rescued.
