Fire official said that no one was trapped inside the building. Firemen had put 16 fire engines into firefighting operation to ensure that it should not spread in neighbouring buildings. They managed to control the fire after three hours of struggle.

It was a C-1 category (most dangerous) building and the state government authority, Mhada had vacated the premises four year ago. Such buildings need to be demolished for reconstruction. There is no clarity why Mhada failed to demolish the dangerous structure in last four yeas, putting lives of thousands of pedestrians in danger who passes from the building regularly.

There were gaps between the building’s pillars and the shops on its ground floor. The gap between the shops and the pillars were used as temporary footpath by pedestrians and hawkers.

The building was empty and no one was living inside said a BMC official.

Assistant municipal commissioner Kiran Dighavkar said, “The fire started from second floor of the building after which half of its portion collapsed.”

BMC with the help of Mhada may demolish remaining portion of the building. The building is situated on a busy road outside CST railway station, and BMC deployed vehicles and labourers to transfer the building debris to another location to avoid inconvenience to motorist.
