MUMBAI: Eicher Motors Ltd on Wednesday said that a fire broke out at its stockyard facility at Kukas, near Jaipur, at about 12:30pm today. The unit belongs to its motorcycle unit Royal Enfield.

"All manpower and personnel have been evacuated from the area and emergency protocols have been followed. There has been no harm or injury to personnel working at the facility," the company said in a statement.

It said the fire was brought quickly under control with the help of local police and fire department authorities.
