Fire at actor Moon Moon Sen’s twin flats, none hurt
Mumbai: Fire broke out in two adjoining apartments of noted actress and Trinamool Congress MP Moon Moon Sen here in the wee hours today, civic officials said.
However, Sen and her daughter actress Riya Sen, who were present in the house at the time of the mishap, were unhurt, they said.
The blaze erupted in the twin apartments on the sixth floor of seven-storey Ruia Park building in suburban Juhu.
“We got a call at around 2 AM that a fire has broken out on the sixth floor of Ruia Park in Juhu. We then sent three fire engines, three water tankers and an ambulance to the site to evacuate those trapped in the building,” an official of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) told.
“Neither the actresses nor other residents of the apartments were injured in the incident,” he said.
The exact cause of the fire was yet to be ascertained, though preliminary reports suggest that it was the result of a faulty wiring in air-conditioning mechanism, he said.
Riya expressed outrage over the incident on social networking site.
“Our buildings on fire! We’ve lost two of our flats! And the fire engine took an hour to arrive! Shame on this country!” she tweeted.
