In a prompt and effective operation, the Pune Fire Brigade successfully extinguished a fire that erupted in an apartment within a residential building in Sadashiv Peth on Monday.

Upon reaching the scene, firefighters discovered a second-floor blaze in a multi-story building situated in front of Annabhau Sathe School. The dedicated team, led by drivers Aniket Oval, Omkar Sakhre, Prasad Shinde, and Tandel Sanjay Gaikwad, alongside firefighters Nilesh Mane, Shubham Deshmukh, Aditya Pardeshi, and Sagar Ingle, swiftly entered the affected flat to extinguish the flames and conduct a thorough search for potential occupants.
