Mumbai: Four men were charred to death in a fire that gutted a cloth godown in suburban Kandivli in Mumbai on Sunday, a civic official said today.

The blaze was reported in the facility located in Damu Nagar, near MIDC bus stop, at around 4 pm on Sunday, said an official from the Disaster Management Unit of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

"Four casualties were recovered from debris of the godown by fire personnel who were conducting fire fighting operations at the spot by 5 AM on Monday", he said.

They were taken to Shatabdi Hospital in Kandivli, where doctors declared them dead, he said.

Investigations are underway as authorities have yet to determine the cause of the blaze. The official said fire personnel are conducting search operations at the storeroom premises.

When asked about the identity of the deceased, the official said prima facie that they are workers, but it is yet to be confirmed.
