One of the fire brigade personnel who rescued people in a fierce fire at Battery Factory Okaya in the industrial area of Piragadhi in the national capital, Delhi, left the world scorching in that fire. On receiving the news of the fire in the factory in the early hours of Wednesday, fire brigade personnel reached the spot and saved 17 lives. Cooling work was going on after the fire was overcome, but in the meantime a large part of the building collapsed with a blast, in which fire worker Amit Balian was badly injured. He died while undergoing treatment in the hospital. Balian had learned the tricks related to search and rescue in the Delhi Fire Service in the last one year, he was also full of humanity. How Amit, who was very enthusiastic in his duty, can be gauged from the fact that even when a large part of the building was collapsing, he did not back down and was busy in saving the caretaker and two workers of the building. Perhaps the destiny was that he saved the lives of three people, but could not save himself.
