    Electrical safety is not given much importance in some offices and Banks due to lack of knowledge or ignorance. This is the cause of fire and once the fire starts,it can even melt any metal body and burn everything .
    I have done Electrical safety audits of several banks and ATMs and pointed out numerous fire hazards.
    In ATM,fire may occur due to UPS battery and AC.

    Looks like something went wrong when someone unprofessionals tried to brake open ATM.Instaed of gas cutter,simply let gas in,and got fire during the process because they had some cigarette or beedi in mouth..Hope noone got injured.because of fire ,they must have ranout without lacs.

    It is unbelievable. A thorough investigation will reveal the exact cause of this so called accidental fire at an ATM of Canara Bank. ATM's are fire proof as cash is kept in a strong chest box.

    This fire really engulfed the money unlike other fires where other things are lost.
    Again in India safety of anything is not given any importance at all.
