Mumbai news: A massive fire broke out in the slum area of Bhayandar East, Mumbai at about 4 am today. Firefighting teams are at the spot. More details are awaited, according to a report by PTI. 

One person died, and several others sustained injuries, according to a report by Hindustan Times.

A major fire broke out in a slum at Bhayandar in Maharashtra's Thane district neighbouring Mumbai on Wednesday morning, destroying several huts and shops, officials said.

Some persons were feared injured in the blaze, they said.

The fire started at around 6 am in the Azad Nagar slum, Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) Commissioner Sanjay Katkar said.

Some explosions were heard in the locality, according to sources.

The occupants of huts and other residents of the locality ran out of their homes after the blaze erupted, said Katkar who was overseeing the rescue and relief work at the site.

As many as 24 fire engines were rushed to the spot and efforts were on to douse the blaze, the official said.

Many commercial establishments are located in the slum colony, he added.

Meanwhile, a fire broke out at the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC) Pise Water Pumping Station Monday evening, leading to a significant impact on water supply across several parts of Mumbai, on February 27.

According to a civic official, the incident impacted the water supply in the eastern part of eastern suburbs, as well as the water supply from Golanji, Fosbery, Raoli, and Bhandarwada reservoirs in the city.

Consequently, there was no water supply in these areas for the next 24 hours. Additionally, the water supply pressure in the western suburbs and other parts of Mumbai were also be affected, said the official.

As per the civic official, the BMC administration has urged citizens to cooperate and utilize water resources judiciously since the prompt cooperation of residents is essential to mitigate the impact of the disruption and ensure that essential water services can be restored as swiftly as possible.

Efforts are underway to address the situation and restore normalcy to the water supply system in the affected areas.
