New Delhi: In an unfortunate incident, a level-III fire broke out at the Rolta Technopark building in Andheri East in Mumbai. As per updates, the fire broke out in the server room on the second floor of the Rolta company. As a precautionary measure, the nearby buildings have been vacated.
To bring it under control, nearly 8 fire tenders have rushed to the spot. After a tough operation, the fire was brought under control. However, no casualty has been reported from the incident.
As per updates, the fire broke out in the ground-plus-three storey building located in Rolta Technology Park in the Marol area around 11.30 AM. Later more fire engines and 11 jumbo water tankers joined to extinguish the inferno.
According to civic sources, initially, the fire was confined to the server room of the building, but later it spread to other parts of the structure, gutting a major portion of it.
Mumbai’s Chief Fire Officer Prabhat Rahangdale said dense smoke engulfed the building and its staircases, posing difficulties in the fire-fighting operation.
“The situation is deteriorating as there is no ventilation in the building. Firemen are facing difficulty in the operation due to intense heat and dense smoke inside the building, he said.
The situation is grave because of aluminium cladding, glass facade and lack of ventilation in the building, the Fire Brigade said.
