Fire Breaks Out On “Assam River” And Twitter Doesn’t Seem Happy About It

In yet another incident that threatens the environment, a video of water on fire has been doing the rounds. The massive fire, that erupted on the tributary of the Brahmaputra river, was the result of the leakage from underground oil pipelines. Thankfully, the fire got doused off on its own and no causalities were reported.

“Fire on river. Burhi Dihing river caught fire at Naharkatia, Assam, due to oil pipe blast in last three days. But no one cares,” wrote a Twitter user and shared the video.

After the video went viral, netizens took on Twitter to lash out on officials and media for not covering the incident that threatens the climate and lives of people.

Comments like “Shocked that it is not part of mainstream media”, “And how it happened? Rather it’d ask, who did it?”, “An environmental disaster”, “OMG! Stop this insanity now,” soon flooded the Twitter.


For facts, the fire was caused due to a mechanical issue that resulted in a rupture in the crude oil pipeline. Thereafter, the oil began spilling on the Burhi Dihing river in Assam’s Dibrugarh causing huge blazes.

The officials suspected it as an act of some miscreants. “It appears that some miscreants had set fire to the oil floating on the river. There have been no casualties and the blaze got doused on its own. The situation is under control,” said an official.

The pipeline, as of now, is working fine and the normal flow of crude oil has been restored.
