A fire that started at the staff offices of the Café Zoe, created a little havoc on the property, today. The residential are was situated at the Toit Brewery inside the crowded Mathuradas Mill Compound, which is set next to the Lodha Supremus building, on Senapati Bapat Marg in Lower Parel (West). The first seemed to have started at 10:30 AM. All the staff members and other employees were alerted about the situation and fled the spot, while also using the fire extinguishers and sand buckets to tackle the flames. The firefighters were called, and they tried to rush to the spot. Other vehicles reached the spot and tried to get as close the wall as possible so that they could get to the target and extinguish the blaze.
A crowd quickly gathered around the spot, as smoke rose to the sky and was visible to many who were in the area. Klay Prep School and Daycare, a school situated at close proximity to the spot of fire, was also evacuated in fear of the fire spreading outward. Four months ago, a tragic fire at the Kamala Mills was the cause of the death of 14 people.
There have been no confirmation about the cause of the fire, however there have been reports that a short circuit was responsible. But the reassuring thing is that no one was hurt in the accident, and everyone was taken out of the area quickly. The fire was brought under control after an hour, according to the sources.
