Mumbai: In a span of just eight hours, Mumbai witnessed three separate fire incidents, keeping the city's emergency services on high alert.

First Incident At Reay Road

The first blaze erupted earlier today at a godown located in the Devidayal Compound, nestled within the Darukhana locality on Reay Road. The fire, which ignited around 10:30 am, prompted a swift response from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and the Mumbai Fire Brigade (MFB). The fire was contained within the single-storey structure of the industrial estate, with no reported casualties. Despite facing challenges due to the intensity of the blaze, a comprehensive team consisting of firefighting personnel, local civic ward staff, Mumbai Police, Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) workers, and ambulance services, worked to bring the situation under control. The cause of the fire remains under investigation, although the MFB classified it as a 'Level-3' incident, necessitating substantial resources and efforts for containment.

Fire Incident At Hiranandani, Powai

In the second incident, reported at 11:19 am, a fire broke out near 90 feet road, close to Hiranandani in Powai West. The MFB swiftly responded, preventing casualties despite the fire affecting approximately 1500 square feet of area, comprising 12-15 hutments. The flames, fueled by electric wiring, household articles, clothes, and LPG cylinders, were successfully extinguished by a team comprising multiple agencies, including the MFB, Police, Adani, and ward staff. The deployment of firefighting resources, including Fire Engines, Foam Tenders, Jet Tenders, and Quick Response Vehicles, aided in containing the situation.

Fire Incident In Malad

The third incident occurred in Malad West, near the Garib Nawaz Mosque in the Ambojwadi area. A fire erupted, reportedly caused by a short circuit in a nearby mobile network tower. The blaze, surrounded by hutments, caused significant damage to houses beneath the tower. Despite prompt dispatch of the fire brigade team, heavy traffic congestion, compounded by the area's slum status, posed challenges in reaching the site. The revelation that the mobile tower was illegal adds further complexity to the situation.
