ire continued to rage in two of the 11 IOC fuel storage tanks near here today even as a body was dug out of the debris and another man injured in the inferno succumbed to injuries, taking the toll in the blaze to 12.
Over 50 locals residing in the vicinity of the fuel depot at Sitapura, 20 kms from here, have reported to various hospitals complaining of itching, eye burning, suffocation and skin allergies due to the fire which broke out on Thursday.
Chief Fire Officer Ishwarlal Jat said the blaze in the two remaining petrol tanks has reduced considerably but it will probably take one more day for it to completely die down.
Efforts would be made to douse the fire in remaining two tanks by fire fighters, he said.Text: PTIImage: Flames and smoke rise on the third day of a fire at an oil depot, in Jaipur, India, Saturday, Oct. 31, 2009.
