Fire rips through two slums in Mumbai
A fire broke out in two slums in Bandra and Andheri suburbs yesterday reducing scores of hutments to ashes, officials said, adding that there were no human casualties.
The first fire broke out around noon in Bandra west’s Nargis Dutt slum followed by over half a dozen blasts as gas cylinders exploded.
At least 25 fire tenders were called into service along with a large Mumbai Fire Brigade contingent, which managed to bring the blaze under control within two hours.
The cause of the fires was not clear yet. (IANS)
