Assam Rifles Assists locals in Fire Fighting

TAMENGLONG: Tamenglong battalion of Assam Rifles of Senapati Brigade under the aegis of Red Shield Division rose to the occasion and assisted the civil administration and locals in fighting a fire that broke out at a shopping complex near Medical Gate of Tamenglong Town on 01 Jan 2016.

On being informed, troops of Tamenglong battalion Assam Rifles immediately rushed to the site along with a water bowser and fire fighting equipments and commenced firefighting efforts to extinguish the fire. Six wooden shops were completely gutted by the fire due to storage of inflammable products inside the complex which with timely intervention of fire fighting column of the Assam Rifles battalion resulted in prevention of spread of fire to four adjacent shops.

The likely cause of the fire was due to electric short circuit which resulted in bursting of an LPG cylinder kept in a small hotel of shopping complex. The fire was finally extinguished after sustained efforts of civil administration, locals and Assam Rifles troops for one and half hours and no injury or casualty occurred during the incident.
