The first incident occurred on the second floor of 16-storey Trikuta Tower near Suncity Complex in Powai. The fire brigade received a call around 10.45 am and the flames were extinguished by 11.19 am. The fire was of level I and no injuries were reported in the incident.

The second fire broke out inside a vehicle at Renault's service centre in Sona Udyog Bhavan — Jeep Service Centre. It happened around 12.10 pm and the flames were doused by 12.30 pm. The fire brigade declared it as a level I fire.

Earlier in the week, a fire had broken out at City Centre mall near Mumbai Central and it had taken the fire brigade 56 hours to douse the flames, making it the longest fire-fighting operation ever carried out by them.
