The report added that all occupants evacuated the building safely before the fire escalated. Since it was recently constructed, residents only occupied up to the third floor. The fire, however, reached apartments up to the 18th floor.

After hours of efforts, the firefighting teams successfully brought the fire under control, and cooling operations are currently ongoing.

A fire brigade official told Times of India that the fire spread to the duct area of the flats, where fibre sheets were installed on each floor.
