NEW DELHI:  At least forty-three people were killed in New Delhi on Sunday when a fire swept through a six-storey factory where laborers were sleeping, government officials said.

The factory was making handbags and lots of raw material was stored inside the building due to which the fire spread quickly, local media reported. However, no details were immediately available on the cause of the fire.

“Till now we have rescued more than 50 people, most of them were affected due to smoke,” Atul Garg, an official with Delhi Fire Services told reporters.

The factory was operating in a congested residential area.
