Fire breaks out in Charkop Industrial Estate in Mumbai

A fire broke out in Charkop Industrial Estates in Kandivali West, Mumbai on Wednesday afternoon.

Four fire fighting vehicle's have rushed to the spot.

A toy manufacturing unit located in suburban Kandivli was gutted in major fire. However, nobody was injured in the mishap. Four fire engines and four water tankers were pressed into service to douse the flames.

The cause of blaze, which erupted at around 1.45 pm, at Anmol Industrial Estate, is yet to be ascertained, Fire Brigade officials said. Plastic toys, electrical installations and wiring were gutted in fire even as the area in and around the spot was engulfed in smoke.

The flames were finally put out after nearly two hours.

The fire in Mumbai comes a day after a major fire was reported on the 20th floor of a high-rise residential building in South Mumbai’s Cuffe Parade area. Two people were killed in that fire that left 14 others injured.
