A fire broke out in a building in Sector 30A near Vashi railway station in Navi Mumbai. According to ANI, the fire in Arunachal Bhavan building is now under control and further extinguishing operations are on.

The fire broke out on the top floor of the 10-storey structure. A report in Times Now said that the fire control room in Navi Mumbai has alerted all fire stations to be on alert for the incident.
