Khedekar said material dumped near an apartment on the second floor caught fire, possibly due to a short circuit. It caused flames and a lot of smoke. “We brought the situation under control in some time. Residents were shifted to safe places and no casualties were reported in the incident,” said Khedekar.

“During the firefighting operation, a flat owner Samuel told us about his 10 Persian cats inside the house where a lot of smoke had gathered. Firemen Mangesh Milawane and Chhagan More went inside with torches, conducted searches and rescued all the cats that were hiding at different spots to save themselves from the fire,” said Khedekar.
