MANGALORE : The accidental fire in the Pachanady waste dumping yard in the outskirts of the city, resulting in thick cloud of smoke in the surrounding areas, has created quite a panicky situation among the residents of the nearby Mangalanagar in Vamanjoor. Around 20 fire service personnel are struggling to put out the fire, while locals complain that the authorities had failed to arrive at the spot on time on Sunday.
The MCC has provided two tankers to assist the fire service personnel who complained that they were facing problems in extinguishing the fire due to non-availability of the required water.
