An inferno destroyed Resul Pookutty’s office, which is on the fifth floor of Dilkap Chambers at Veera Desai road in Andheri. Although there weren’t any casualties or injuries, the fire charred almost all equipment and property.

According to the staff members, who were on the premises, the fire broke out at around 2 pm on the second floor. Deputy Chief Fire officer Atmaram Shinde, said, “The blaze started from Oval Village Film Private Ltd.’s office which is on the second floor of the ground plus seven storied building.” There weren’t any injuries as the office was shut for the day. The fire then spread through the building and charred Resul’s office, which is on the fifth floor.

The fire was so intense that four fire engines and three water tankers had to be called in. The workers said that the fire brigade reached the location two hours after the fire broke out. Deputy Chief Fire officer, Ramesh Kholkhumbe denied this and said, “We received a message at around three in the afternoon at Andheri fire station. There were around 70 to 80 people on the second floor. They were evacuated without any injuries. We are still investigating the reason for the fire.”

According to fire officers, some problems were encountered in putting out the blaze due to the ventilation system.
