Gurugram (Haryana) [India], July 12 (ANI): One person was detained on Friday after locals of the DLF area here allegedly thrashed and injured three firefighters, who were there to douse a fire.

"We received a call from the police about a fire in the area at around 1:44 am. A fire tender along with one driver and three staff were immediately rushed to the spot," District Fire Officer (DFO) Isham Singh Kashyap told ANI.
