MUMBAI: A fire broke out in the basement of a ground-plus-20-storey building in suburban Bandra on Thursday afternoon, a civic official said.

There was no report of any injury, he said.

The blaze erupted around 1.15 pm in Kanakia building's basement, where various scrap items were kept, near Kherwadi police Station in Bandra (East), a fire official said.

Four fire engines and water tankers were rushed to the spot and the blaze was doused after about an hour, he said.
