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.
