Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has urged the Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan to take urgent steps for putting out the fire at the Baghjan oilfields at the earliest. He directed the Tinsukia District Administration and police to take necessary measures for safeguarding the interest of the local people of the affected area. He also called Defence Minister Rajnath Singh to deploy Air Force for controlling the fire in the oilfields.

Official sources said that while the clearing operations were on at the well site, the natural gas well of Oil India Limited caught fire yesterday after 13 days of blowout. However, no casualty has been reported so far. Fire tenders are at the site controlling the spread of fire. Once the situation is normal, the experts will move to the site. Meanwhile, Assam Chief Secretary Kumar Sanjay Krishna asked the Army and Air Force to be ready for any help at Baghjan.
