A fire broke out in a godown at Maharashtra Compound in Govandi’s Baiganwadi area on Monday afternoon. Three workers in the godown have sustained minor injuries, officials with the disaster management department said.

“The three women jumped out of the building and saved themselves,” said a fire department official, who did not wish to be named. They have been taken to Rajawadi hospital for treatment.

The fire started around 1.25pm and engulfed the ground floor of the 10,000 sq ft godown. Within 15 minutes, fire department officials declared it to be a major fire. The godown was being used to store tiles and clothes.

Twelve fire tenders and two water tankers were at the spot, officials added. The fire was brought under control by 3pm and doused an hour later.

The cause of the blaze is not yet known.
