Local Congress leader Amin Patel said there are no casualties.
When the blaze started this evening, 14 fire engines were rushed to the spot but only one of them was equipped to reach the 12th floor. Four ambulances were also pressed into service.
"There is only one exit and smoke in the staircase is preventing the people from coming down," said Viraj, whose mother resides in the building.
