Two killed, four injured as fire breaks out in ONGC oil well near Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad, Mar 14 (UNI) At least two contractual workers were killed and four sustained burn injuries after a massive fire broke out in an oil well of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) at Nandej near Ahmedabad.
The blaze broke out at around 2030 hours on Wednesday night where repair and maintenance operations were on. Soon after the incident, nine fire tenders were pressed into service which took them nearly 40 minutes to bring the inferno under control, an ONGC statement said on Thursday.
"Unfortunately two contractual workers have lost their lives in the incident. While Sanjay Mahendra Singh (25) was brought dead, Shahjad Alam Ansari (27) succumbed to injury at 0700 hours on Thursday. Four other contractual workers who were afflicted with severe burn injuries are being treated at a Hospital in Ahmedabad. While reasons behind this accident are being enquired into, ONGC is committed to provide all support as per its policy to the bereaved families as well as the ones who have suffered burn injuries", the statement added.
