13 People Killed in Fire at Illegal Garment Factory in India

At least 13 workers have died after a fire broke out at a suspected illegal garment factory on the outskirts of Delhi in India on Friday morning. Local police spokesperson Bhagwat Singh told AFP that the workers were sleeping when the blaze took hold on the ground floor of the narrow residential building, which was being used to make faux-leather jackets in the suburb of Sahibabad. Authorities believe that the fire, which started at 4:30 a.m. local time, is the result of either faulty wiring or a unextinguished cigarette. Police superintendent Salman Taj said that three of the 13 were burned to death; the others succumbed to smoke inhalation. Another two to three workers, whom witnesses said survived by leaping from the building’s balcony, were rushed to the hospital, where they’re being treated for injuries.
