Nearly 150 firefighters and 35 fire trucks have been called in to deal with a fire that started at a shop in a north Delhi neighbourhood, officials said on Wednesday.
The narrow lanes of Gandhi Nagar are proving to be a major challenge to tackle the blaze, they said.
The fire trucks have had to be parked at a distance.
There is no water source available nearby either, making the task more difficult.
The call for the fire was received at around 5:40 pm.
More details are awaited.
