DHENKANAL: (Odisha): The fire brigade team of GMR Kamalanga Energy Limited (GKEL) has saved the Bhagamunda village under Mangalpur Panchayat in the district and successfully extinguished the fire that devastated two families in the village on October 27 afternoon.  Employees of GMR Varalakshmi Foundation (GMRVF), a non-profit wing of GMR Group, consoled the affected families and distributed relief materials including clothes, tarpaulin, dress etc and fifteen days ration free of cost.

The fire brigade team had reached at the spot on time and extinguished the fire immediately that prevented possible spread of fire to neighbouring houses of the village. The villagers of Bhagamunda have appreciated the fire brigade team of GKEL for the immediate step and rescuing the two families.
