A fire broke out in a cosmetic factory in the Baddi industrial area of Himachal Pradesh's Solan district on Friday afternoon, trapping 32 people inside. Emergency responders quickly transported 32 individuals to various hospitals for treatment. Among them, five with critical burn injuries were taken to PGI Chandigarh, six to ESI Katha, and two to Baddi Hospital, while 19 are receiving treatment at the Brooklyn Hospital.

Firefighters from Nalagarh and nearby areas are actively working to control the blaze, and the National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF) is engaged in rescue operations at the scene in Jhadmazri. The fire-fighting efforts are challenged by thick smoke emanating from the cosmetic materials. Eyewitnesses reported that workers had climbed on top of the building for safety.
