HUBBALLI TIMES NEWS DESK
Hubballi, May 21: A fire in the chips factory in the industrial area of Rayapur between Hubballi and Dharwad has destroyed things worth around Rs 2 lakh.
An oil leak in the heat boiler in the factory that manufactures chips and other deep fried items apparently caused the fire.
Since the workers in the factory managed to come outside the building just as the fire started there has been no loss of life. The fire extinguishing squad arrived at the spot immediately and doused the flames.
The thick smoke rising out of the factory building, however, caused worry among the citizens nearby.
