Fire broke out at one of the expensive properties in the World – Antilia owned by Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani. The house which is worth more than 1 billion dollar with an envious provision of natural lighting and dedicated parking facility for more than 100 cars has been occupied only by Mukesh Ambani, his Wife Nita Ambani and their kids. The building apart from maximum provision for natural lighting and automatic lights still generates hefty electricity bill which gets paid on time thereby prompting BEST to give some discounts which has been criticised by others.
“The blaze erupted on the ninth floor and was extinguished within a few minutes. There was no major loss of property,” a senior civic official said. The fire is expected to have broke out few minutes past 9PM yesterday.
“We got a call at 9:04 pm and fire brigade personnel reached the spot at 9:13 pm on the Altamont Road,” said Mahesh Narvekar, Chief Officer, Disaster Management Cell of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai.
There were no casualties reported since the fire was extinguished on time and was confined to 4G antenna on the ninth floor. Only after the blaze was set off, situation came under control which otherwise would have created a havoc in the area.
A Reliance spokesperson also said that the fire was in the garden area and was extinguished averting the major disaster.
