The rise in the fires at the landfill has been attributed to a rise in the temperature in Delhi. Fires were reported at the landfill on April 10 and 20 as well. Hindustan Times reported that more methane gas is generated by decaying organic matter. “Methane gas spontaneously ignites under such weather conditions. It is a natural phenomenon. Such a major fire at Bhalswa has not occurred lately and we will look into the exact cause once the situation is under control,” the paper quoted an official as saying. (Image: Reuters)
