Mumbai: A massive fire has broken out at the Maharashtra Secretariat or Mantralaya building in south Mumbai. More than 20 fire engines are fighting the flames. No casualties have been reported so far, but several people are still feared trapped inside the building.

The fire began on the fourth floor of the building at around 2:45 pm and has now reached the sixth floor where Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan’s office is located. Sources say the Chief Minister was inside the building but has been rescued.Files related to the Adarsh building scam are also stored on fourth floor. However, there is nothing so far to establish that the fire was not an accident.
Evacuations are under way. Force One, Maharashtra’s elite security force, has also been called in for help.

Approximately 200-300 people were inside the seven-storey building when the fire broke out.

The exact cause of the fire has not yet been ascertained. But sources say air conditioning short circuit may have caused it.
