A fire broke out at a warehouse of the online grocery platform BigBasket in Maharashtra's Pune district, gutting the property on Sunday. There was no report of any casualty, fire brigade officials said on Monday.
The fire erupted in the godown located in the Bawdhan area on Pune city's outskirts at around 11.30 pm on Sunday, they said. 12 fire brigade vehicles were rushed to the spot, they added.
"Some part of the warehouse's shed made of tin made it difficult for the fire brigade teams to douse the flames. We had to remove the fallen tin sheets with the help of JCB machines," an official from the fire department said.
The flames were put down after about two-and-a-half hours, he said.
"Items kept in cold storage, other groceries and some two and four-wheelers were damaged in the fire," the official said, adding that the exact cause of the blaze was not yet known.
