About the fire incident

A massive fire erupted in a slum area close to the Golden Nest circle in Bhayandar (east) on Wednesday morning, 28th February 2024. The incident occurred at approximately 5:30 am in Azad Nagar, a densely populated slum where numerous scrap warehouses containing dangerous substances were also situated.

An extensive amount of property damage has been reported, as around 50 huts, along with numerous scrap storage buildings and other businesses, were destroyed in a fire. It took over four hours and approximately 134 firefighters to extinguish the intense flames. The fire is said to have started in a scrap storage building, likely due to a short circuit, and quickly spread throughout the entire area. The sound of loud explosions suggests that gas cylinder blasts may have contributed to the large-scale blaze.
