Fire breaks out at Heera Panna mall, 20 rescued

A major fire broke out in a mall in Mumbai, resulting in the evacuation of 20 people and the hospitalization of four. The fire was caused by an electrical short circuit or a cigarette stub and the non-functioning fire-fighting system in the building posed a challenge to firefighters. The fire was contained to the second and third floors of the mall and did not spread to other areas.

Twenty people were rescued, one of them a senior citizen who was found in an unconscious state. He and three others were subsequently admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital (KDAH). Two of them – Raj Prabhas Israni, 69, and Amruta Mukesh Sagar, 39 -- were admitted to the ICU as they had suffered smoke inhalation, while two others – Mitesh Seth, 39, and Sachin More, 41 -- were released after treatment (Vijay Bate/HT Photo)
