Bargarh: Driver and helper of an oil tanker are feared burnt alive as the tanker caught fire in Odisha on Thursday.
According to reports, the incident took place at Saya Chhak on National Highway (NH) No- 6 of the district.
After getting information about the incident, firefighters and local police though arrived at the spot; they are yet to bring the fire under control even after around two hours of hard work.
