A wada pav stall was gutted in fire following a kerosene stove blast near Samarth Plaza in Mulund West on Monday evening.
The incident took place around 7 pm at a wada pav stall located at RRT Road, next to Samarth Plaza near Mulund railway station in Mulund West.
According to officials, the vendor was using a kerosene stove in the stall, which exploded and the fire quickly spread to the entire structure.
