Rs 150 crore up in smoke in Amritsar paper mill fire-Punjab

It's been more than 30 hours since fire broke out at the waste paper stockyard of Khanna Paper Mill located on the Fatehgarh Churian bypass road. Another 24 to 48 hours is the estimated time when the flames are expected to be doused fully. The loss is estimated at Rs 150 crore.

Though no casualty has been reported in the incident, 40 houses located behind the mill's boundary wall have been vacated and gas cylinders in their kitchens too have been removed. It all started at 1 pm yesterday when flames were spotted on the rear of the 10-acre open yard, which stocked 70,000 metric tonnes of waste paper and other cardboard material.
