A major fire broke out on the fourth floor of an industrial complex at Lower Parel in Central Mumbai shortly after midnight, an official said today.
The fire broke out around 1 a.m. at a dilapidated 'Navrang studio' -- which was shut years ago -- in Todi Mill Compound at Senapati Bapat Marg, he said. So far, no casualty has been reported, the official said, adding that firefighters are trying to contain the blaze.
Eight fire engines, seven tankers and an ambulance have been rushed to the spot. "The studio building is old, unoccupied and precious," the official said, adding that the exact reason of the fire is not yet known.
On December 29, a fire broke out in the Kamala Mills Compound in the same locality of Central Mumbai in which 14 people were killed and more than 21 injured.
