2 dead in massive fire at Mumbai's Kandivali slum, several injured

Mumbai: At least two people have been died and nearly 1000 houses have been burnt in a massive fire that broke out around 12:30 pm at Damu Nagar slum on Akurli in Kandivali suburb of north Mumbai on Monday, reportedly, triggering a series of gas cylinder explosions. 

According to the fire department officials, over 30 people were rushed to Shatabdi hospital and other private hospitals in Kandivali. “The fire was caused by around 13 cylinders which burst,” the official said, adding, "about 16 fire trucks and 12 tankers have rushed to the spot." He also said that due to lack of proper roads, fire trucks were breaking some shanties to get to the fire. The slum is reportedly located in a congested colony.

The place is said to house a number of godowns.

Video of the fire showed a plume of black smoke rising above a densely populated area.

A resident from a nearby area said he "heard a loud blast and then 20-30 explosions one after the other every 2-3 minutes."

The fire has led to traffic jams in Kandivali.
