The external material storage area at the Nokia Plant caught fire on Thursday. Firefighters struggled for an hour to get back the scene under control. Since the fire spread because of inflammable chemicals kept in the storage area there were no life injuries. The Company is situated in the Nokia Special Economic Zone near Sriperumbudur which is 35 kilometers away from Chennai City.
It was around 11 a.m. that a thick smoke swelled from the storage area of Perlos Telecommunication and Electronic Components India which manufactures cell phone covers for Nokia. There were no employees surrounded that place at the time of the accident. When the employees noticed the smoke at 11.15 a.m. they immediately alerted the fire rescue department and started put out the fire.
