The incident comes less than two days after back to back fires were reported in Mumbai. The mishaps took place at a commercial building in Sakinaka, Andheri and a garment godown in Kalbadevi. Both did not result in any casualties.
In a separate incident, a car had caught fire opposite Viviana Mall on the Eastern Express Highway in Thane last night.
