Four fire tenders were at the location to assess the damage and carry out rescue. 

Police and district Officials are also at the site to conduct an enquiry into the mishap. 

The explosion took place in a residential area and damaged several buildings in the vicinity causing panic among the public living in the surrounding residences.

There is no specific mention of permission being granted to firecracker industries. 

However, accidents at firecrackers units have become a painful reality, with recurring mishaps and loss of lives amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
