Fire at Mumbai commercial complex under control (Lead)September 7th, 2012 - 4:10 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Sep 7 (IANS) A major fire that broke out on the 12th floor of a commercial building in northwest Mumbai Friday was brought under control after over three hours of effort, an official said. No casualties have been reported.
The fire broke out at around 10.45 a.m. Friday. However, it cannot be said how long it will take to contain it entirely, a fire brigade official told IANS.
Nine fire engines and five water tankers were still making efforts to douse the fire that engulfed the 12th floor of the First International Financial Centre in the Bandra-Kurla business hub in northwest Mumbai.
According to eyewitness accounts, the building was newly constructed and housed no offices owing to ongoing refurbishment work. The building was evacuated as there were a few construction workers inside.
Surrounding buildings were also evacuated. The cause of the fire has still not been ascertained.
