Mumbai: An elderly woman was killed when a fire broke out in a residential high-rise in Kurla on Wednesday, the BMC Disaster Control said.
The fire was noticed around 7 a.m. in Building No. 7-C in the Kohinoor City complex in Kurla West.
Many people were stranded in the upper floors owing to pocket fires from the 4-10 floors and were guided to the building terrace.
Teams of firefighters are battling the conflagration even as the people on the terrace were rescued safely.
Later the fire-fighters rushed one seriously injured senior citizen — Shakuntala Ramani, 70, to Rajawadi Hospital where she was declared dead on admission.
