Mumbai: A fire engulfed an industrial area in suburban Malad Tuesday morning, but no casualty was reported, a civic official said.

The blaze erupted in a commercial unit near Somwar Bazar in the Bombay Talkies industrial area around 11.30 am, he said.

Eight fire fighting engines and three jumbo tankers were rushed to the site and the blaze was brought under control, the official said.

"The fire broke out at 11.27 am and our control room was informed at 11.50 am. No casualty or injury was reported

in the mishap," he said.

Mumbai police personnel, ambulance and officials of the civic ward concerned also reached the site, he said.
