A fire broke out on the thirteenth floor of a residential complex in Lokhandwala in Mumbai, early on Thursday morning.

Reports said fire tenders were rushed to the Raheja Classique building, including four fire engines and three water tankers. By 8 am, authorities were able to bring the blaze under control.

It remains unclear if any occupants were trapped in the building. So far, there are no reports of any casualties.

Fire brigade officials said that the fire, which raged on the higher levels of the building, spread due to strong winds.

The fire mishap follows the major blaze in Bhiwandi, a Mumbai suburb, two days ago. On April 12, a powerloom in Bhiwandi town caught fire, trapping dozens of people for several hours.
