MUMBAI: A fire on the twentieth floor in the densely populated Tardeo area of south Mumbai this morning has caused chaos and left seven people dead while several others have fallen ill due to suffocation due to smoke. Relief work is in full swing. The building named Kamla is adjacent to the famous Bhatia Hospital. According to the fire brigade, the fire broke out on the 18th floor of the building. Several people have been evacuated from the building.
The fire brigade station is located at Nana Chowk, so fire engines and crews rushed to the scene. Flames are visible from several kilometers away and smoke is rising. So far, crews are busy rescuing people. The fire brigade has called for a Leviter van from Baikla as it is not safe to enter the building.
