Kochi: In a development of a massive fire at the Brahamapuram waste plant here, Kochi Mayor M Anil Kumar Thursday informed that the condition is improving each day and “we can return to normal life in 1-2 days.”

A massive fire broke out last week on March 2, which engulfed the whole town, leaving the same in smoke and the fire has not been totally controlled even a week later.

“Periodical fire has been breaking out here since 2012. But now, the coordination has been strengthened,” the Mayor said.

Recently, N S K Umesh took charge as Ernakulam District Collector replacing Renu Raj. The Mayor said that the new collector visited the place of the massive fire in Brahmapuram.

“The Collector, MLA and I sat down together and held discussions with all departments. We are under the impression that the Fire Dept can ease out the whole scenario and we can return to normal life in 1-2 days,” asserted the Mayor.

The Brahamapuram waste plant fire occurred on March 2. The efforts to douse the fire were ineffective, resulting in smoke from the garbage dump.
