MUMBAI: A fire which broke out in a four-storey building in Fort area of south Mumbai was doused in the early hours of Thursday after hectic efforts for about six hours, a civic official said.

A 22-year-old man received burn injuries in the fire which erupted in Bahubali building on Kawasji Patel Road in Fort around 7.15 pm on Wednesday.

It was initially tagged as a 'level-2' fire, but later escalated to 'level-3' (major) around 10.30 pm as it spread to various parts of the building, the official said.

Several fire engines were rushed to the spot and firefighters managed to douse the flames at around 1.30 am on Thursday, he said.

A major part of the building was gutted in the fire, sources said, adding that a short-circuit was suspected to have triggered the blaze, but the exact cause was not yet known.
