A major fire broke out in a building next to the Elphinstone Road railway station, Mumbai that left 20 people stuck inside, including seven on the terrace.
Four fire engines arrived at the scene a little over 20 minutes after the fire broke out. The Mumbai police cannot confirm whether there have been any casualties yet.
The fifteen storey building, which is known as Naman Midtown Tower, is primarily a residential building but a few offices operate from it.
The fire department put out the fire and evacuated all the 20 people who were trapped inside.
“We have been informed of a major fire at 20-storey Naman Midtown building in Parel area and have rushed four fire
tenders to the spot. We have also sent two snorkels to evacuate people stuck in the high-rise,” an MCGM (Municipal
Corporation of Greater Mumbai) official said.
