Thrissur: The Fire Force will serve notice on all the hotels, apartments and commercial buildings in Guruvayur which are not properly maintaining the fire safety system installed in them. The move comes in wake of the death of an 80-year-old man in a fire accident caused by LPG leak at Sree Vaikundam apartments near the western entrance tower of Sree Krishna temple  on Sunday. K. Sadasivan of Poojapura in Thiruvanathapuram, who was staying in the apartment,  suffered 70 per cent burns in the accident.  He died at Amrita Hospital in Kochi on Friday morning.

His wife C. Sathyabhama, who suffered 30 percent burns, is undergoing treatment. The Fire Force found that the fire safety system installed in the apartment had not been maintained for several years and they had a tough time in the rescue operations. Mr  R. Pradeep Kumar,  fire station officer in Guruvayur, told DC that notice would be issued to all the building owners from Monday. 

 

If they did not fall in line by renewing the fire systems in the buildings, the municipality would be given  the details of the defaulters and it would be then up to the civic body to take action against the buildings. The fire safety officials told DC that only a few hotels and apartments properly maintained the system in the temple town.   The associations in residential apartments have  to renew the fire and safety licence, they said.
