A massive fire broke out early morning in Delhi's Anaj Mandi area on Sunday in which at least 35 people have died so far. Rescue and fire department officials have so far rescued around 50 people.

Delhi police have confirmed the huge death toll in the early morning fire in Delhi. Over 56 people have been injured in the fire.

Speaking to India Today TV, fire department officials said they received a call in the morning about the fire and had no information about people trapped in the burning building, which caused a delay in the rescue operations.

Authorities from the LNJP hospital have confirmed many of people who were brought to the hospital have died. Many of the rescued and injured have been rushed to RML Hospital, Lady Hardinge and Hindu Rao Hospital.

Sources say the building was packed with labourers who worked in different factories. Police have started looking for the owner of the building.

Over 30 fire tenders were rushed to the spot to douse the fire and to carry out rescue operations.

Atul Garg, Chief Fire Officer, Delhi Fire Service said, "Till now we have rescued more than 50 people, most of them were affected due to smoke."

Many people were trapped inside the building when the fire broke out early morning. A call about the fire was received at 5:22 am following which 30 fire tenders were rushed to the spot, reported PTI.

Speaking to media, Deputy Fire Chief Officer Sunil Choudhary said, "A fire broke out in a 600 sq feet plot. It was very dark inside. It is a factory where school bags, bottles and other materials were kept."

Rescue operations are still on while the surrounding buildings in the area are being emptied.
