Massive fire in Mumbai’s Aarey forest

Dec 04, 2018 07:24 IST

A massive fire erupted in Mumbai's Aarey forest near Goregaon suburb on Monday evening. The blaze has engulfed about four kilometres of forest as firefighters scrambled to contain the flames. So far there have no casualties but the fire threatens the tribal residents of the area and the plants and wildlife in the city's biggest green lung. Fire department officials said they are trying to douse the blaze but the winds from the hills are helping it spread to nearby residential areas.
