Pulgaon,Jun 01: "Mecca of Ammunition" says a board outside Pulgaon's Central Ammunition Depot, Asia's biggest. A fire yesterday killed 16 people, including two Army officers and 13 fire-fighters who had rushed to douse the blaze that broke out a little after 1 am.
"Local people are among those firemen who died. There also are those jawans who have retired and are now again in service. But they haven't been identified as yet," a bespectacled man explained at Agargaon village, located at one end of the sprawling 7,000 acre defence property.
