A major fire broke out on the fourth floor of an industrial complex at Lower Parel in central Mumbai shortly after midnight, in which a fire officer was injured, reports said.
Officials told PTI the fire broke out around 1am at a dilapidated Navrang studio -- which was shut years ago -- in Todi Mill Compound at Senapari Bapat Marg.
Eight fire engines, seven tankers and an ambulance were rushed to the spot. The exact reason behind the fire was yet to be ascertained.
An ANI report said a fire officer was injured in the blaze, which was later brought under control.
“The studio building is old, unoccupied and precious,” an official told PTI.
“This building has not been functional for nearly 20 years now. The fire broke out in the fourth floor of the building,” ANI quoted deputy chief fire officer R Chaudhary as telling reporters.
Reports said the condition of the building was poor, and it can collapse at any time.
