Highrise fire kills two aged citizens

 
Mumbai: Two elderly women were killed when they tried to flee their flats after smoke from a fire triggered by an explosion in the electric meter room engulfed an 11-storey building in Ghatkopar (E). Seven others were injured in the incident around 12.30am on Tuesday.
   In a similar incident on May 3, three elderly persons fell and died while running down the stairs after a meter box
explosion in a six-storey Mulund building.
   The guard of Savani Apartments near Rajawadi Naka rushed to the meter room after the explosion and saw plumes of smoke. Some plastic chairs in the room had caught fire. Soon, panic-stricken families from the 66 flats poured out into the smoke-filled stairs. Nirmala Ajmera, 75, and her son also came out of their sixth-floor flat, but she collapsed. Two floors up, 83-year-old Shantaben Damani couldn't even reach the stairs and fell outside her flat. Both died of suffocation. Another resident, Chandra Doshi, 75, was also rushed to hospital and is on ventilator.
