Two top floors were almost gutted after a fire broke out in a partly-occupied residential tower of Hiranandani Heritage complex in Kandivali here on Thursday.

According to a spokesperson for the realty group, the conflagration was reported around 1 p.m. from the 32nd floor of the building where some renovation work was in progress and it later spread down to the 31st floor.

Four fire tenders, two ambulances and water tankers were rushed to the building which is a new construction in the complex and only 18 flats were occupied.

There were no reports of any casualties so far and the preliminary cause of the blaze is suspected to be a short-circuit, the spokesperson added.

The conflagration was brought under control in less than three hours by the building security and the fire brigade due to a modern fire-fighting system installed within the complex, situated on a busy thoroughfare.
