Virtually everything that was of worth💰 has been reduced to ashes😳, including various fossils💀. After it was found out that the museum’s fire-fighting system🚨 had failed, Environment🌳 Minister Prakash Javadekar has asked for an urgent audit🔎 in all museums across 🇮🇳. Javedkar said, “We will assess the damage as soon as we (can) and see how we can restore it.” However, museum officials said💬, "Everything has been damaged, some by fire, some by gases and some by the water used to douse the flames." Around 35 fire trucks🚒 arrived at the area to fight the fire which was finally brought under control at 6.00 am🕡. The museum had 3,000 children 👫visit it daily. As per Delhi Fire Service chief⛑ G.C.
