Mumbai: At least 14 people, including two children, sustained burn injuries after a fire erupted in an eight-storey residential building at Malad area of Mumbai on Tuesday. According to the reports, a fire broke out in the metre cabin under the staircase at the entrance of the Girnar Galaxy building located at Sundar Nagar in Malad (West) at 9.48 am today. 

As soon as information about the fire was received, the fire brigade reached the spot and launched a fire-fighting operation. The fire was successfully brought under control  in less than 10 minutes, but 14 persons sustained injuries when they tried to leave the premises. 

Chief Fire Officer of Mumbai Fire Brigade Ravindra Ambulgekar said, "People sustained burns as they tried to leave the building when they found out about the fire. There wouldn't have been any injuries if they had waited inside their homes for the fire brigade to evacuate them safely."
