Mumbai: A fire broke out in Family Court at Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) in Mumbai on Saturday. The blaze, reported on the third and fourth floors of a government building adjacent to the Balaram building, sent plumes of smoke billowing into the sky.

The incident, reported at 3.25pm, prompted an immediate response from the Mumbai Fire Brigade and other emergency services.

Four fire tenders, four jet tankers (JT), and a slew of agencies swiftly mobilised. Fire brigade officials rushed to oversee the operation as firefighters battled the flames. Despite the intensity of the blaze, no casualties or injuries were reported.

The fire, declared as Level I by the fire brigade at 3.36pm, posed a challenge to the responders due to its location in a multi-story government building. However, their coordinated efforts, coupled with the prompt mobilisation of resources, were instrumental in containing the fire and preventing it from spreading further.

Initial reports suggest the fire originated in the housing pay and accounts department building near the Family Court. The precise extent of the damage incurred by the building and its occupants remains to be assessed. Authorities have stated that while investigations are ongoing, the exact cause of the fire has not yet been identified.
