Five major buildings were destroyed, and these contained around 100 shops that were blown out.Three of the five buildings affected have collapsed, according to he.Dejected traders who had their noses and mouths covered with handkerchiefs to mask the stench waited impatiently to enter their incinerated shops to recover whatever they could, ignoring the intermittent sounds of blasts and policemen warning of boned-out areas of buildings that were collapsing.We are waiting for the fire to be completely stifled, but I don't think anything is left...

Balwinder Singh, who runs a store in the building opposite one of the damaged buildings, was among those eagerly waiting for it to end.Around 11 p.m., I was told about the fire and my father was in the shop.Singh said that while our store is safe, I am here to check it out.Poor infrastructure, a shortage of water, and narrow lanes, she said, made it a big challenge for them to carry out fire-fighting operations.

There were 40 fire trucks and 200-plus fire personnel on site.The building started to collapse, owing to weak buildings, a water shortage, and a narrow lane.In the meantime, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal expressed regret for the incident and said he is gathering information from the district administration.This incident of fire in Chandni Chowk's Bhagirath Palace market late last night is concerning.

I am gathering records from the district administration, he tweeted in Hindi.
