Mumbai: The spate of fire incidents in the city continues unabated; the latest being a major fire that broke out Wednesday in an industrial estate at Mulund-Link Road, Goregaon (east), gutting dyeing machines, furniture, electric wiring, installations and large stocks of clothes at Parekh Cloth Mill located on the ground floor. However, no casualty was reported.

The fire brigade received a call about a blaze at around 7am and eight tankers were rushed to the spot. It is being investigated why the fire broke out. The estate, named Italian Industrial Estate near Oberoi Mall in Goregaon, is a ground-plus-three structure and houses Parekh cloth mill on the ground floor. A fire official said, “Flames engulfed the large stock of clothes, dyeing machines, furniture, electric wirings, installations etc.”

This is the fourth major fire incident which has occurred since the beginning of 2018. On January 4, a major fire in an Andheri residential building claimed the lives of three family members. A week after, the ceremonial lounge of the domestic airport was completely gutted in a fire. Thereafter, the iconic Navrang Studios in Todi Mill compound, Lower Parel, was completely charred in a major fire. Even towards the end of last year, a major fire in the Kamala Mill compound claimed 14 lives and injured several others on December 29.
