Fire breaks out at Reliable Tech Park in Navi Mumbai's Airoli; no one injured, fire tenders rushed to spot

A fire broke out at an office park in Navi Mumbai's Airoli on Wednesday, according to several media reports.



No casualties have been reported.

Times Now reported that three fire engines and ambulances have been rushed to the spot.

Efforts are underway to contain the fire, according to the report.

The incident comes days after a massive fire broke out in Bandra's Behrampada slums, injuring four, including one fireman.

The fire was classified as level IV, the second highest level of severity, and 17 water tankers and 9 fire engines were pressed into service to douse the massive blaze.

The fire broke out when municipal officials were carrying out an anti-encroachment drive outside Bandra station.

Although the cause is yet to be determined, the fire was reportedly caused due to a series of cylinder blasts during a demolition drive.

Two weeks ago, a massive fire had broke out at Mechemco Resins Pvt Ltd's factory in Navi Mumbai's Turbhe.

The blaze began at the factory located at the TTC Industrial Area of Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC).

No one was injured in this incident.

In early October, a fire broke out on a tank farm on Butcher Island, a loading hub for petroleum products off the city’s east coast.

The fire raged for over four days, resulting in losses of at least Rs 60-70 crore. A 50-member team of firemen battled the blaze.

The blaze was contained to one tank farm owned by Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL). The affected tank's capacity was around 40,000 tonnes, which was partly filled with high speed diesel.

Nearly 25 percent was lost to the flames.
