Greater Noida:

A massive fire broke out at a menthol warehouse in Greater Noida's Kasna area in the wee hours today. 

Around 18 fire engines from Noida and Ghaziabad have reached the spot and are trying to douse the flames.

No casualties or injuries have been reported, a fire officer said.

"The fire continues to rage for more than three hours. Fire personnel are facing difficulty to douse the flames due to the huge amount of menthol oil stored at the warehouse," the officer said.

"There are hundreds of menthol oil drums inside the warehouse and they are exploding," fire officer Arun Kumar Singh told news agency ANI.

The fire was contained but will take more than three hours to fully douse it off, he said. 

The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained and an investigation is being carried out in this regard.
