Fire in Bandra Garibnagar Slums, train tracks closed as authorities try to control the situation
Written by Abhishek Rana

There has been a massive fire in the Bandra Garibnagar slums, and 9 fire engines and 7 jumbo tankers are now trying to extinguish the fire. Smoke is filling the sky and there are people still trying to run away from the incident where it all started, there have been no reports about the reason of the fire, but the fire engines are at the spot and will try to control the fire as best as they can. The Harbour line has been crossed, and the reason has been rumoured to be because of cylinder blasts in the slums while the demolition work by BMC was going on.

People are now sharing the photographs from the site, but there hasn’t been no report of casualties.

More report have come and there has been no report of mass casualties, and all the emergency units have arrived to the site so that people have some sense of safety and the fire has been taken under control, so it won’t be able to spread over to the parts of the station and the slum. No organization has taken responsibility of the fire, so it seems that a freak accident was the cause of the fire, and it will be taken in control in some time.
