MUMBAI: Three labourers were killed and two others injured when the chimney of a bakery collapsed here on Saturday, a senior police official said today.      

The labourers were having dinner inside the bakery, a single-storey structure on SV Road in suburban Jogeshwari, when its chimney caved in at around 10.30 pm yesterday, the official said.
