After the fire started, a 3-km area around it was sealed to prevent people or animals from straying near it, reported Mumbai Mirror. Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s Disaster Management chief Ramesh Narvekar said the territory made it troublesome for flame motors to achieve the spot, yet included that splashing it was less demanding than different flames since it broke out in a separated stretch.
