Mumbai: Two people were charred to death in fire that broke out late Tuesday evening at a residential building in Andheri (West).

An official of the Disaster Management Cell of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation said that three persons were rescued from the high-rise on Veera Desai road in suburban Andheri.

The blaze started at 8.21 pm on the fifth and sixth floor of the 21-storey building, officials said. As a precaution, people living on the fourth and seventh floors were evacuated.
