Four people, including two children, died and five were seriously injured after an upper floor of a residential building in suburban Marol caught fire.
“Mumbai Fire Brigade got call at 2:10 AM about fire at the fourth floor of Ground plus Mamoon Manzil building at Marol in Andheri East. Our fire brigade personnel along with the fire-fighting system and ambulance reached at the spot at 2.34 AM and swung into action to douse the fire,” said an official from Disaster Management Unit of BMC.
“Firemen covered the fire from all side at 4:20 AM. Total nine people were injured of which four were declared brought dead by the nearby hospital.”
The fire spread to the electric wiring, electric installations and household articles in Room 306 on the third floor of four storey residential building. Fire Brigade officials said the blaze engulfed the flat from all four sides, trapping the residents.
The incident occurred scarcely a week after 14 people died in the fire at a trendy rooftop pub in Mumbai’s Kamala Mills complex in Lower Parel. The police said the deaths were because of suffocation. Many could not find emergency exits. Firemen found that there were no extinguishers and there were illegal structures that exacerbated the fire.

Though BMC came out on street and hammered down many fire prone buildings, (Read This: http://mavericktimes.in/2017/12/31/react-can-act-indian-government-kamala-mills-fire/) but still, this is not enough. We need a strong legislature amendment to decrease the frequency of such incidences.
