Children killed in latest Mumbai blaze

Mumbai: Two children were among four killed in a fire in Mumbai on Thursday, the third blaze to hit India's financial capital in just a few weeks.


Five people were also injured when the fire broke out on the fourth floor of a residential building in the city's Andheri East area .


"Four died, including two children aged 10 and 14. Five others have been admitted to hospital," a spokesman for Mumbai's disaster management cell told.


 It is the latest blaze to highlight concerns over fire safety in Mumbai, where millions live in cramped dilapidated properties.
