Massive Fire breaks out in chemical factory in Karnataka's Malur town..
At least four people,including two children have died and five seriously injured in a fire that broke out at a building in Mumbai's Marol late last night.
The fire broke out on the third floor of Maimoon building in Marol area at around 1.30 am. Of the nine people rescued, four have died and five others were taken to a nearby hospital, the firefighting official said.
"Mumbai Fire Brigade got call at 2.10 am about fire at the fourth floor of Ground plus Mamoon Manzil building at Marol in Andheri East. Our fire brigade personnel along with the fire fighting system and ambulance reached at the spot at 2.34 am and swung into action to douse the fire," said an official from Disaster Management Unit of Mumbai civic body, BMC.
"Firemen covered the fire from all side at 4.20 AM. A total of nine people were injured of which four were declared brought dead by the nearby hospital," the official said. The fire was completely doused by 5 am, he said.
The incident comes barely a week after 14 people were killed in the fire at a trendy rooftop pub in Mumbai's Kamala Mills complex in Lower Parel. 11 of the dead were women, mostly in their twenties and early thirties. Most of the bodies were reportedly found piled up near a women's washroom.
The police said the deaths were because of suffocation. Many could not find emergency exits. Firemen found that there were no extinguishers and there were illegal structures that exacerbated the fire.
Police investigating the Kamala Mills fire said, the pubs in the complex didn't follow safety regulations making it impossible for people to make a safe exit. Following Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' order, unauthorised structures at more than 300 sites in the city were razed.
Five people, including staff of pubs in the complex have been arrested in connection with the fire tragedy.

VERY VERY USEFUL.!
A woman's experience with burns .!!
Some time ago I was cooking some corn and stuck my fork in the boiling water to see if the corn was ready. I missed and my hand went into the boiling water.
A friend of mine, who was a Vietnamese, came into the house as I was screaming & asked me if I had some plain old wheat flour...
I pulled out a bag and he stuck my hand in it. He told me to keep my hand in the flour for 10 minutes.
He said, "in Vietnam, there was a guy on fire and in their panic, they threw a bag of flour all over him to put the fire out... Well, it not only put the fire out but he never even had a blister...
Long story short... I put my hand in the bag of flour for 10 min, pulled it out and did not even have a red mark or a blister & absolutely NO PAIN.
Now, I keep a bag of flour in the fridge and every time I burn myself.....Cold flour feels even better than room temperature flour.
I use the wheat flour and have never ever had even a red spot/burn mark, or a blister.
I even burnt my tongue once, put the flour on it for about 10 minutes... the pain was gone and no burn.
Try it . . . Experience a miracle.
Keep a bag of flour in your fridge and you will be happy you did..!!!
Flour has heat absorbing property and also is strong antioxidant property. Thus helps in burns patient if applied within 15 minutes.
