In a tragic incident in the early hours of Sunday, a major fire broke out at the iconic Secunderabad Club. The fire blaze destroyed the heritage building. The reports suggest that the main facade was gutted in the fire. The preliminary investigation suggests that the property's damage has been estimated at around Rs 20 crores.


The fire engulfed Secunderabad Club around 3 am. The fire rescue team rushed to the Secunderabad club as soon as they were informed. To extinguish the flames, seven fire engines were pressed into service. In a press note, the State Disaster Response and Fire Services department said that the massive fire was brought under control after continuous efforts of the fire rescue crew for a period of 3 hours.


The press note said, "The fire was completely extinguished by 8:40 hrs, and all the fire vehicles were withdrawn from the fire ground. One water bowser of Fire station, Secunderabad, was kept as a precautionary measure at the fire ground. The cause of the fire is under investigation, and the loss of property is under assessment."Telangana Special Chief Secretary Arvind Kumar deemed the accident 'unfortunate' on his social media handle and asked the Director-General, Fire services, to ascertain whether the club had appropriate fire protection measures installed. He also questioned whether the safety audit was in place or not.


Exclusively for military officials under the British regime, the Secunderabad club was established in 1878. The Elite club, which has 5000 members, is spread on a sprawling campus of 30 acres. Around 300 staffers are working at the Secunderabad Club.
