Recently, there was an incident when a car went up in flames right on the road. The fire tender arrived on time though the car was totally up in flames. While it’s a rather scary incident, a passerby from the old city frowns that the entire old city barely has three fire stations.


The situation is so, particularly in the south zone and its extension area up to Pahadishareef. As of now, there are three fire stations in Moghulpura, Chandulal Baradari, and Malakpet to attend emergency calls in the old city. Incidentally, all the three were set up about 20 years back.


The fire station at Chandulal Baradari was set up as there was an industrial area, though the companies later moved to Katedan and Gagan Pahad. Another fire station was sanctioned for Yakutpura. However, due to the unavailability of land, the station was not set up. Though the fire officials requested the government for land, the station did not materialize.


However, finally, the fire station was instead set up at the Osmania General Hospital on ‘express instructions’ to attend fire calls from the hospital and surrounding areas. Yakutpura happens to be a densely populated area with about 70 small colonies and slums. The slums have small cottage industries, and small fire accidents are common. But the fire tender comes from Moghalpura, which is between three to four kilometers.


Lots of chaotic traffic is a huge problem in this part of the world, and many locals say it would be best if a fire station is opened at Chandrayanagutta. This would help the tender to reach in five minutes, they say. Similarly, locals feel if the government sets up a fire station on Bandlaguda road, then people from Katedan Industrial Area, Falaknuma, Chandrayanagutta, Errakunta, Hafeezbabnagar can be attended to at the earliest.
