Major fire in government building in India
MUMBAI, India (AP) -- Hundreds of employees have been evacuated from a seven-story government building as nearly two dozen fire engines battle a major fire in India's financial and entertainment capital.
There are no immediate reports of casualties. Television images showed the blaze and the smoke engulfing the upper three floors of the building in southern Mumbai on Thursday.
The building houses the offices of several Maharashtra state ministers.
The Press Trust of India news agency says no casualties have been reported so far. The cause of the fire was not immediately known.
