Several fire engines, two quick response vans and five water tankers are believed to be at the spot putting the fire out. No casualties have been reported so far. Police sources say over 90 residents of the apartment complex have been safely evacuated. It is not clear what started the fire.
There have been two major fires in Mumbai just this month, one at the income tax office and another at Patel Chambers in the Fort area, in which two firefighters were injured. Last year, the upscale La Mer complex in Bandra - home to many celebrities including actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's mother Vrinda Rai - caught fire.
