While sources said there have been fires at the site ear­lier too, they did not spread mas­sively be­cause the dump­ing ground has been planned sci­en­tif­i­cally

How­ever, fire per­son­nel bat­tled the blaze for five hours

Lo­cal cor­po­ra­tor Suresh Kulka­rni said, “This is not the first time a fire has bro­ken out at the land­fill site. It has hap­pened 3-4 times ear­lier. It hap­pens due to the gas em­a­nat­ing from the garbage. The ad­min­is­tra­tion should take pre­cau­tions such as in­stalling CCTV at the site.”

A so­cial ac­tivist Khaja Pa­tel said, “The lo­cal res­i­dents have long suf­fered due to the dump­ing ground near a res­i­den­tial area. The peo­ple have been suf­fer­ing from grave health con­se­quences.”
