Mumbai:  A fire broke out at a timber yard in Mumbai’s Byculla in the wee hours of Wednesday (August 28). The incident took place at around 2.25 am and 8 fire tenders along with fire brigade jawans were rushed to the spot, an official said.

The fire fighting and rescue operations are ongoing. No casualties have been reported so far. 

Mumbai fire brigade department chief PS Rahangdale said the fire is confined to the ground floor of the structure where timber of different types has been stocked in an area of about 100 x 200 feet.

Just last month, a massive fire broke out inside the Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) exchange building in suburban Bandra with nearly 100 people being rescued from the terrace of the building, an effort which lasted several hours.
