The incident comes barely a day after another fire broke out Tuesday on the second floor of a seven-storey commercial building situated in Madhur Industrial Estate in suburban Andheri. Eight firefighting engines, a water tanker and five ambulances were rushed to the spot.

Station officer from Goregaon fire station, Y P Shelar, received burn injuries on both his hands in the incident and was admitted to Cooper Hospital, a fire brigade official said.

"The injured officer was then shifted to Airoli Burns Centre and is now undergoing treatment there," the official said.
