Greater Noida: A major fire broke out in the wee hours of Monday at a menthol warehouse in Kasna area of Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh. Around 18 fire tenders were pressed into service to douse the flames. According to news agency, ANI, no casualties or injuries have been reported, a fire officer stated.

The fire continues to raze for more than three hours and the fire personnel are facing difficulty to douse the flames due to the huge amount of menthol oil stored at the warehouse, the officer said.

"There are hundreds of menthol oil drums inside the warehouse and they are exploding," Fire Officer Arun Kumar Singh told ANI. The fire was contained but will take more than three hours to fully douse it off, he said. Further details awaited.
