Nokia Plant Catches Fire in Chennai

A major fire broke out in the godown of a vendor firm of mobile phone manufacturer Nokia at the Sriperumbudur SEZ, about 40 km from here today.

The vendor company was located inside the Nokia mobile manufacturing facility. Police said no one was injured in the fire which broke out at 1030 hrs in the godown of Ferloss, a vendor company that manufactures spare parts for Nokia mobiles.

An electrical short circuit in a motor kept inside the godown was said to be the cause of the fire. The loss was being estimated. Fire fighting units from Kancheepuram, Sriperumbudur, Irungattukottai, Perambakkam and Maraimalai Nagar battled hard for several hours and brought the fire under control.

However, work in the Nokia manufacturing facility and other vendor firms were not affected following the fire. A Nokia release said mobile phone production in the facility was not impacted.
