Fire breaks out in Mumbai's Lokhandwala area

Mumbai: A fire broke out in Mumbai’s Lokhandwala area on the thirteenth floor of the high rise Raheja Classique building on Thursday morning.

At least four fire engines and three water tankers have been rushed to the spot to douse the flames.

Reports said that fire engines faced no difficulties to reach the spot as the lanes in Lokhandwala are wide as compare to Bhiwandi where lanes are narrow and congested.

According to officials, the fire is under control and no casualties have been reported.

The incident happened just two days after a massive fire was broke out in a residential building in Bhiwandi in Thane district. As many as 300 people were safely evacuated from the area.

In the past week, there have been repeated incidents of fire that have been reported in Mumbai.

The incidents only highlight the fact that fire safety measures have not been taken seriously by the building authorities.
