A fire broke out at a commercial complex in the Todi Mill Compound in Lower Parel, Mumbai on Thursday, a fire brigade official said. No casualty or injury was reported in the mishap.

The fire brigade control room received a call about the blaze erupting from some commercial structures in the Todi Mill Compound at 11.04 am, the official said.
Four fire fighting engines were immediately pressed into service to douse the flames, he said. "The fire was controlled and extinguished within an hour and no one was injured in the incident," he said.
The exact cause of the fire and loss of property will be ascertained after a thorough investigation into the incident, the official said. Mumbai police also rushed its personnel to help in dousing the flames. "Yes a fire broke out at Todi Mills. Fire brigade as well as @MumbaiPolice staff is on the spot.

On January 19 this year, a fire had broken out in the dilapidated Navrang studio, which was shut years ago, in the Todi Mill Compound. However, no one was injured in the mishap. After the Kamala Mills Compound fire in December last year, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation and the city's fire brigade department had taken several measures, including removal of encroachments from the industrial and commercial areas across the city.
