Underground and exposed cables allegedly belonging to BEST caught fire at Worli on Tuesday evening.
According to local corporator Ratna Mahale, there is road widening work going on near Lotus cinema at Worli where the utilities lie exposed. “No precaution has been taken at the site. We can hear tiny blasts underground, also there was a small fire. Lot of smoke from the cables could also be seen. The fire brigade are trying to douse the fire, but with the cables being underground, even their work seems tough,” she said.
BEST PRO said that a team has been sent to the spot to check on the fire.
