12 die as farsan shop turns into an inferno

In a tragic incident that shook the city on Monday morning, 12 people were killed in a fire that broke out in a small-scale condiment factory in Saki Naka. The factory, Bhanu Farsan, situated on Khairani road in Makhriya compound, manufactured and sold farsan and was operating without any licenses from the civic body. All the 12 deceased were workers and were fast asleep when the fire that gutted the premises broke out at around 3.45 am. As per the civic authorities, most of the dead suffered almost 100 per cent burns; two bodies were charred beyond recognition.The primary fire report by BMC states that the fire started because of an electrical wiring short-circuit, however it spread rapidly when fuelled by the oil and gas cylinders stored in the kitchen. “There were 20 people inside the factory, of which eight managed to escape,” Deputy fire officer, DK Ghosh said, “However, 12 others got trapped as the fire exaggerated after LPG gas leaked from the cylinder.”The knob of the cylinder melted due to the heat.”Chief fire officer PS Rahangdale said, “It was a small structure and high quantity of oil was stored in the kitchen. So many people should not reside in such a small place. The fire spread fast due to the oil and many workers could not escape. They died due to intense smoke and heat.”The structure was registered as shop, but a family of three lived on the ground floor. The family members escaped without any injuries.Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta has asked the chief fire officer and the L Ward officer to investigate whether the structure was legal and had the permits required to run commercial activities. The report has to be submitted in 15 days.The commercial structure is owned by Sanjay Makhriya and was rented by Ramesh Bhanushali, who ran Bhanu farsan factory. Dr Vidya Thakur, medical superintendent at Rajawadi Hospital, Ghatkopar, said, “The victims died due to suffocation and also due to burn injuries. The post-mortem has been conducted, and reports will be submitted to Saki Naka police.”Meanwhile, the Saki Naka police have detained the supervisor of the farsan shop and will be questioning the owner Ramesh Bhanushali as well.ND Reddy, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone 10) said, “Primary probe shows that the owner of the factory violated several norms. We will be booking the supervisor and the owner of the factory for causing death due to negligence. Prima Facie, the fire erupted due to short-circuit and gas leak caused it to spread rapidly. We are waiting for reports from the civic body for further investigation.”

Will conduct inquiry on safety norms violation: BMC Chief Ajoy Mehta

Civic chief Ajoy Mehta visited the incident site on Monday and told DNA that an inquiry will be conducted to ascertain whether fire safety norms were violated.Did the fire break due to lapses in safety norms?It was a sad incident and I personally visited the site to take stock of the situation. It’s a very crowded area and we will conduct an inquiry to look into violations of safety norms if any. Thereafter we will take further action as needed. I strongly believe citizens must take the first step towards fire safety. Wherever you work or stay, you must ensure that the stipulated fire norms are complied with.Is BMC’s fire department fully equipped to effectively handle fires?Due credit must be given to our jawans and officers who quickly doused the fire and also prevented its spread in the densely populated area. In the past two years, the BMC has fortified its fire brigade with the latest in firefighting equipment, upgrading the training of personnel and increasing the human resources available.How can Mumbaikars be proactive in fire mitigation and control?Fire safety norms have to be fulfilled, it’s imperative. We must do away with the attitude that ‘it can’t happen to me’. One can very well be the victim to such a situation if one is not cautious.

Bandra fire: Civic officials suspect foul play

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A day after a massive fire broke out on Thursday afternoon in the Garib Nagar slums in Behrampada area of Bandra East during a demolition drive ordered by the Bombay High Court, civic officials said on Friday that they suspected foul play behind the fire. The BMC intends to carry out further demolition in the area.A senior civic officer, on condition of anonymity, said that while a thorough investigation into the cause of the fire is being carried out by the Mumbai Fire Brigade and Nirmal Nagar police, the way the fire started from the ground up, in an area where there was no electrical wiring, indicated that some material lying on the ground was deliberately ignited.The fire engulfed 170 shanties and damaged many others surrounding it. Three firemen sustained minor injuries during firefighting operations.”I was present during the demolition and we had asked Reliance Energy to cut the power supply. In most cases, the fire gets ignited due to short circuit. However, as the area had no electricity supply there was no chance of fire getting started through electrical wiring. We initially saw some material, 5 to 6 feet long, lying on the ground on fire. Within minutes, the flames fanned out,” a civic official said.”The demolition was carried out of the slums falling in the buffer zone of the Tansa pipeline as per the High Court’s order, and we wanted to demolish over 190 shanties. As 50 to 60 shanties were demolished, the fire broke out and engulfed almost 170 shanties and damaged others. The slum dwellers here have always resisted demolition. It is most likely that the fire was started to stop the demolition,” the officer added.However, Chief Fire Officer P S Rahangdale said, “The official call of fire being doused was at 6 am on Tuesday morning. We will start the investigation of the cause of this major fire. It is a slum cluster and a complicated matter. We will take at least a week to find the cause of the fire”.Meanwhile, on Friday, slum dwellers were busy making temporary shelters out of clothes and rods for themselves to stay in. While the civic body did not carry out further demolition on Friday, the slum dwellers were seen making food in a community kitchen and making a shelter for themselves with the help of sarees and bamboo.Mohammed Kalim, who lost his home due to fire and a member of Garib Nagar Welfare Association, said, “We are not illegal dwellers. Majority of us have been staying here since few decades, and have identity proof. We met our lawyer on Friday and he has told us to bring all documents which will help us to get our homes. We have been running from pillar to post after the demolition and fire. Most of the belongings have got damaged due to fire.Children have their exams from the first week of November, but do not have any study material.”

Foam and other extinguishing agents are being used for the purpose,” Mumbai fire brigade chief P S Rahangdale said.He said firefighters of MbPT as well as the fire brigade team are working in tandem to douse the blaze.According to Rahangdale, fire brigade personnel involved in the firefighting operation through the night have been relieved and new staff staff have been deployed there.”There has been a good coordination between Mumbai fire brigade personnel and the MbPT fire service team. The fire brigade team had reached around 10 feet near the blaze-hit tank, but reignition at dawn has posed a new challenge before us. However, the blaze is under control,” he said.”I am monitoring the operation. Because of the heat, the foam (used as an extinguisher) is not settling down, this is causing reignition. But overall, the situation is under control,” Rahangdale said but did not specify how long the firefighting operation would continue.”Our main challenge is to keep the other tanks near the affected one safe. So, on one hand our firemen are involved in cooling operations to keep other tanks safe, while on the other, they are also engaged in dousing the flames,” he told PTI.Butcher Island houses a marine oil terminal of MbPT.Oil tankers discharge crude at the terminal, and it is transported to refineries at nearby Mahul through submerged pipelines, port officials said.After the fire broke out, vessels in the vicinity of the island have been moved to a distance as a precautionary measure.A BPCL spokesperson had said yesterday that a lightning strike amid thundershowers was the apparent cause behind the fire. “A diesel tank caught fire due to the lightning and thundershowers,” he had said.Manohar Rao, executive director and head of safety, BPCL, had said that prima facie, the cause of the fire was lightning, though further probe will be carried out on Saturday.

Is Priyadarshani park only plot for a fire station: HC

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Bombay High Court on Tuesday asked Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation to file an affidavit by October 9, explaining whether it has no other space except Priyadarshani Park in Malabar to set up a fire station.A division bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice NM Jamdar has asked the corporation to clarify its stand on the availability of 10 sq. m. of land. This followed after the Malabar Residents Association filed a rejoinder to the BMC affidavit saying that the corporation could shift the fire tenders parked inside the park to an adjoining plot which is empty. Further, there cannot be any construction in the park as it falls under CRZ-I zone.However, the counsel for state government said that the adjoining plot belongs to Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation and cannot be handed over to the civic body. Further, it said that the fire engine is coming in the way of walkers and joggers.The bench, while asking the corporation to file its reply, observed that at night, double parking of vehicles is prevalent in Malabar Hill area, making most roads narrow, and that the corporation is not doing anything to resolve the issue.Malabar Hill Citizens’ Forum (MHCF) has challenged the Corporations’ decision to set up a fire brigade station inside the park.

The petitioner added that the park gates have to be now kept open all through the night so that the fire trucks can go in case of emergencies. This has resulted in several unruly people making the park their shelter at night, sleeping on its benches.PARK GATESA petitioner has said the park gates have to be kept open all night so fire trucks can go out in case of emergencies so people have been using the park as a shelter at night

HC lashes out at Hauz Khas eateries for violating bye-laws

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Will the clearance certificates extinguish fire, an anguished bench of the Delhi High Court today asked the owners of the Hauz Khas village eateries here allegedly running in violation of building bye-laws and the master plan. A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar said that “people have turned blind and to earn profit out of their business, they are doing whatever they want to do”. “Don’t you (owners of the Hauz Khas village eateries) have any responsibility towards the city you live in and its citizens. Is it not your responsibility to ensure safety of the people,” the bench asked. It also asked the eateries who had permitted them to run commercial activities in rural area like Hauz Khas. “Mere permission from the authorities concerned, with regard to the fire clearance and other licences to run an eatery, will not save the life of the people visiting there. “You will have to ensure compliance of building bye-laws as per master plan including parking and other facilities,” the bench said, adding that the roads there are so choked that not even a fire tender can reach the spot during need. The court made the oral observation when an owner of Hauz Khas village eatery approached it for urgent listing of a petition against the south Delhi municipal corporation order to shut down the restaurant. The corporation had issued them notice on the ground that they were operating without any building plan approval or no objection certificate (NOC) from the authorities, including the fire department. Earlier, during the hearing of a plea, the court was told that not a single eatery in south Delhi’s popular Hauz Khas Village appeared to have fire safety clearance. The bench had made the observation as the fire department had not disclosed in its affidavit whether it had received any reference from the police or the civic bodies for fire safety certification to any eatery in the area. The court is already hearing pleas alleging that there are over 120 restaurants and pubs running in the area without any building plan approval or NOC from the authorities, including the fire department.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Fire station in park may not look elegant but it’s must: HC

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A fire brigade station set up in a portion of the Priyadarshini Park in south Mumbai may not look elegant and sophisticated but it was a necessity, the Bombay High Court observed today. A division bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice N M Jamdar made the remark while hearing a lawsuit by the Malabar Hill Citizens’ Forum (MHCF) challenging the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai’s (MCGM) decision to set up a fire brigade station inside the park. The bench asked the citizens’ forum to meet the civic body officials instead and discuss their problems with them. The MHCF had moved the court claiming that several trees and the entrance to the park were demolished to make way for the fire tender vehicles. The petitioner added that the park gates have to be now kept open all through the night so that the fire trucks can go in case of emergencies. This has resulted in several unruly people making the park their night shelter and sleeping on its benches. The court sought to know if there was any other land available in the vicinity where the fire brigade could be set up. The corporation’s counsel Joaquim Reis replied in the negative and said, “The fire station has reduced the response time to fire emergencies in Malabar Hill, Walkeshwar and Peddar Road. Several lives have been saved since the fire station has been set up here.” The court then suggested the petitioners to have a meeting with the civic body officials and discuss the issue and then come back to the court. “The fire station may not look nice and sophisticated but it is a necessity. What if there is a fire somewhere nearby?” Chief Justice Chellur asked and posted the matter for further hearing after two weeks. The Priyadarshini park, spread over 65,000 sq ft, was set up on a reclaimed land and was handed over to the MHCF on lease in 1985. The citizens’ forum developed a children’s park, joggers’ park and sports complex in the park and has been maintaining it. According to the BMC, around 4,000 sq m of the park was reserved for a fire brigade station.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Wedding bells turn to death knell as cylinder blast kills 5

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Just two days ahead of his wedding, the worst tragedy of his life struck Ravikant late on Monday night, when an LPG cylinder in his shanty-cum-tea shop exploded and killed his mother, younger brother, a cousin, and two aunts. The shocked survivors have accused the Fire Department of apathy and delay, saying the fire tenders did not turn up in time despite being called twice.The incident was reported from the Tata Steel jhuggi cluster in southeast Delhi’s Okhla area around 9.30pm. Neighbours said many guests and relatives from outside the city had gathered for the wedding celebrations. The police received a call regarding the incident at 9.45pm, and a team was immeditaely rushed to the spot.”Nine people were injured and were rushed to hospital. A primary probe revealed that a gas stove with an LPG cylinder was placed at the main entry of the jhuggi, and the area was being used as a kitchen. The gas leaked from the regulator. Since it was the only exit, people in the jhuggi were trapped inside. After the fire fighters controlled the blaze, all the injured were shifted to the Safdarjung and ESI hospitals, where five of them died. Four are being treated for critical burns,” DCP (southeast) Romil Baaniya said.The deceased were identified as groom’s mother Usha, 40, cousin Khushi, 6, brother Shashikant, 20, and aunts Lalsa Devi, 30, and Santra Devi, 28. While three of them died on the spot, Shashikant and Lalsa Devi succumbed during the treatment.”We called up the fire brigade twice, but they did not respond,” Jitendra, one of the survivors, said. He further said that he was fortunate to have stepped out of the jhuggi seconds before the blast. Claiming that the fire fighters came 45 minutes after the police made the call, survivors said more people could have been saved with timely action. Shortage of water in the area also hampered the rescue operation initiated by locals.According to eyewitness Rajkumar, a neighbour of the affected family, the fire was massive in proportion, making it impossible for anyone to go near the jhuggi.”Seconds after the explosion, I heard people screaming and ran out of the house to see Ravikant’ s house on fire. Half of the structure had collapsed. Neighbours tried their best to help the family trapped inside but nothing could be done. We called up the police and the fire department, but by the time help arrived, the entire jhuggi and the tea shop had been gutted,” he said.Ravikant and three of his relatives, who were in the close vicinity, were injured while trying to help their family members.
