Chandigarh: During the intervening night of 08th and 09th January 2022, minor fire broke out in the PSA Oxygen Generation Plant in GMSH-16. Because of use of the fire-extinguisher to douse the fire by Shri Chaman Lal, Security Guard and the raise of timely alarm, the damage could be contained to the pre-fabricated structure.
