The entire operation is said to have been coordinated by OCC Commander Gp Capt S K Gupta. The fire was completely put out in less than 20 minutes.

In addition, a report in the Youtube video by Power Stroke PS stated that the fire broke out after an Indian badminton icon, P. V. Sindhu, soared to the skies while co-piloting a Tejas Ligh Combat Aircraft. These are manned 24x7 spotters from Intelligence Bureau and Central Industrial Security Force. According to a policeman present at the venue, one vehicle suddenly caught fire, which spread uncontrollably and took around 80-100 cars in its blaze, resulting in a huge tower of smoke. Likely cause: "dry grass fire aided by heavy winds". There were no causalities in the incident.

No injuries were reported.
