• Fire destroys around 1,000 slum homes in Mumbai, 2 killed


    NEW DELHI (Hindustan Times): Two people, including a child, were killed and at least 11 others injured after a massive fire broke out at the Damu Nagar slums in Kandivli (East) on Monday afternoon. The blaze, which spread across 12 acres, gutted around 1,000 shanties, leaving nearly 10,000 people homeless. A major tragedy, however, was averted as the fire broke out in the afternoon, when a majority of the children were in school and several locals managed to get to safe locations immediately after they heard the first of a series of cooking gas cylinder blasts.
