A portion on the north side of Mehta Babu Chawl near Salami hotel in Juhu Galli crashed around 12.30 am, a fire brigade official told PTI.
Five persons, including a senior citizen, from the building and a fireman from the rescue team were injured, the official said.

The official said the eastern part of building number 10 in Punjabi Camp, opposite Hari Manzil, collapsed, but no one was injured as the structure was vacant.
