"The rescue work is going on a war-footing", BMC fire brigade department chief P S Rahangdale said. At Rajawadi hospital four rescued people were in stable condition. The building houses hospital on the ground floor, which was closed for renovation and the upper three floors had apartments where 20 families resided.

The BMC's disaster management team has received the call about the incident at around 10.43 am, after which at least 14 fire tenders and ambulances were rushed to the spot. Sources state that the report on the incident will be submitted in 15 days.

Twelve people have been rescued so far and have been rushed to Shantiniketan hospital.
