Alappuzha: A plastic manufacturing unit was gutted after a major fire broke out at an industrial area at Aroor near here on Friday morning. No casualties were reported.

The fire was spotted at the Lakshmi engineering works around 4 am, following which, eight fire tenders from Kochi and Cherthala were rushed to the spot.

Fire force personnel had to battle the blaze for nearly three-and-a-half hours to bring it under control. As chemicals also caught fire, it was not easy to douse the blaze, sources said.

As a precautionary measure, the officials had suspended power connection in the area.
