Panic ensued as a fire erupted at Options Commercial Centre located in Santacruz West, near Milan subway, this evening. The blaze, confined to electric wiring and installations on the second floor, triggered a swift response from the Mumbai Fire Brigade (MFB).

Shauqat Ashraf Shaikh, a resident of Milan Subway, recounted the harrowing scene, stating, "I saw one vehicle, a two-wheeler, catching fire, later spreading to nearby vehicles. I witnessed several individuals attempting to escape through windows. I immediately dialed the fire brigade." Shaikh's prompt action led to the deployment of four fire vehicles to the location.

An official from the MFB revealed that the fire originated in the basement, where several vehicles were parked. "Approximately 8 to 9 two-wheeler vehicles were engulfed in flames, but all occupants were successfully rescued," the official stated.

The rescue operation, carried out by the Fire Brigade personnel, was swift and efficient, with 37 individuals safely evacuated from the premises. The fire, reported at around 5:15 pm, was swiftly brought under control by the firefighting team.

Updates provided by the BMC's MFB indicate that the fire was extinguished by 7:14 pm. Fortunately, there were no reports of serious injuries, except for one individual identified as Khushi Dhadwe, aged 19, who suffered from suffocation and was discharged upon receiving treatment.
