Four dead in Mumbai fire

Posted on Updated on

Four people have died and eight others were injured in a fire at a building in a suburb of the western Indian city of Mumbai, media reports say.

Rescue workers evacuated the remaining residents of the building in Vikhroli that caught fire early on Monday. Reports said the fire could have originated in an electrical box and spread through a network of cables.

The building housed people who had been moved from the city’s slums under a government rehabilitation scheme.

Since January, at least 11 people have died and 10 others were injured in two separate fires that swept through a factory and a slum in Mumbai, and last year three floors of the headquarters of the Maharashtra state government building in Mumbai were gutted in a massive fire.
