Mumbai: At least six people died in a major fire that broke out inside a 20-storeyed residential building in Mumbai this morning.
Another 15 people were also injured in the massive blaze that started around 7 am on the 18th floor of Kamla building opposite Gandhi Hospital at Gowalia Tank in Mumbai’s Tardeo area.
Footage from the scene showed a massive plume of smoke filling the sky, with flames coming out from the building.
Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar told news agency ANI that six elderly people needed oxygen support and were shifted to the hospital. The fire “is under control but smoke is huge. All people have been rescued,” she added.
She said Reliance and Wockhardt hospitals had denied admission to fire victims when they were rushed there first in the morning. “We will enquire about this”.
