On Monday night, a fire broke out on the 27th floor of a Navi Mumbai high rise, officials said. The officials further stated that no injuries or casualties have been reported until now, reported ANI. 


According to the report, the incident occurred in the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) area. 


The ANI report stated that due to the fire department's prompt response to the distress call, the fire tenders reached the spot on time and currently efforts are underway to douse the fire. 


The cause of the fire and the extent of damage it caused to the Navi Mumbai high rise is yet to be ascertained. 

In another incident last week, nine persons were injured in a fire. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said that the fire in the Chembur neighbourhood was caused by a gas leak, according to a PTI report. The injured people have been admitted to hospitals.

Reportedly, the gas leak in Chembur occurred in a chawl in Siddharth Colony in Chembur East at 11.45 pm on Thursday, according to the civic authority.

A fire department spokesman told news agency PTI that one fire engine, a jetty, and ambulances were dispatched to the scene, the report added. 

According to the report, despite the fire being doused in 10-15 minutes, nine persons including a 17-year-old boy, suffered burns in the incident. 

The injured persons have been identified as Sangita Gaikwad (55), Jitendra Kamble (46), Yashoda Gaikwad (56), Narmada Gaikwad (60), Ramesh Gaikwad (56), Shreyash Sonkhambe (17), Sherya Gaikwad (40), Vrishabh Gaikwad (23) and Sandip Jadhav (42), the report added. 

In another incident, a large fire broke out at a parking area in the Palghar district of Maharashtra in the early hours of Thursday, damaging six trucks loaded with products, an official said, according to PTI.

Meanwhile, a fire broke out on Wednesday night in a 12th-floor flat of a residential building in suburban Andheri, according to officials. A 67-year-old woman who lived in the flat was admitted to the hospital after suffering suffocation, and her status was described as stable, according to PTI.
