Policemen rescue Tanzanian nationals from fire in Greater Noida's home

NOIDA: A Tanzanian woman was rescued by two alarmed police officers from a raging fire in her home, which also prevented a major catastrophe by evicting four of them, officials said Thursday.

The fire broke out in the apartment of the AVJ Heights on Monday evening and a police station stationed in the area was alerted by locals, it said.

Policemen Dilip Kumar and Manoj Kumar immediately reached the seventh-floor apartment, which was locked from the inside, and saw smoke rising.

The police and some locals tried to spray water into the apartment through accessible windows, but that had no desired result. Then they broke the front door. One of them hurried straight to the kitchen, while the other was saved by the woman, a police officer said.

The cops not only saved the woman from the house, but also brought out four LPG bottles stored in the kitchen to prevent an explosion or other disaster, he added.

The fire was finally extinguished with the help of the fire department.

John thanked Dial 100 officials in writing for their hard work and positive action on Wednesday.

I called the building guard to inform about the fire, and he called Up the police on 100. The s Up port reached AVJ Heights soon and saved me," she said.
