Massive Late Night Blaze In Popular Mumbai Complex Kills 14 People

At least 14 people have died and three were critically injured in a massive late night fire at a multi-storey building in Mumbai.

The fire department received a call about the blaze in a building in the popular Kamala Mills compound in Central Mumbai just after midnight.

The fire in the building started on the top floor and engulfed the structure in less than 30 minutes.

The majority of those killed were women attending a birthday party at a rooftop restaurant, police said.

The 28-year-old woman celebrating her birthday was among those who died.

Kamala Mills, a refurbished industrial compound, houses up market restaurants and other commercial establishments.

Several media outlets also use the compound for their offices and at least three national news channels were affected by the fire.
