The incident took place at around 9 pm. Rescue personnel and fire brigades were rushed to the spot immediately. 

In July this year, at least 14 people died and nine others severely injured after a four-storey building came crashing down in Mumbai's Dongri. The building is reportedly almost 100 years old and a notice had been issued in 2017 for it to be vacated.
