Fire at old goods storage yard near Mylapore crematorium

The goods stocked in a yard used as a godown for old and used goods located behind the GCC graveyard in Mylapore caught fire this morning.

The fore raged for some time and was initially, local people and Urbaser Sumeet staff who work in this zone tried to put off the fore but later, Fire Service personnel, stationed nearby, did the job.

Smoke was seen billowing from this yard which seems to be no-man’s land being encroached on to store goods.

This area is behind the campus of the TN DGP of Police headquarters.
