No casualties were reported in the incident. The fire department said that the fire tender that was stuck was eventually removed later in the day.

Giving details of the incident, officials said that a fire broke out at an electronics store at around 3.30am, and after initial efforts to douse the blaze proved fruitless, local residents gave a call to the fire department at 4.18am.

“Three fire tenders were initially sent to the fire. However, we received a call that one of them got stuck in mud on the main road at Shahbad Dairy. Our staff informed us that due to the incessant rains, the vehicle got trapped,” Delhi Fire Services chief Atul Garg said.

The fire then spread to other buildings, and a replacement fire tender was sent, and the flames were eventually brought under control at around 6.30am.

Officials said they suspect that a short circuit led to the fire.
