Mumbai: At least 14 people were killed and 21 injured when a major fire broke out at a pub in the Kamla Mills Compound here early on Friday.

The blaze was reported around 12.30 am from a bistro The Mojo, a rooftop restaurant pub in The Kamla Trade House, and quickly spread to another surrounding pub and a restaurant, an official of BMC Disaster Control said.

More than 12 fire tenders were rushed to fight the blaze which was brought under control around 6.30 am. Most of the victims are said to be women.

The firemen could rescue 10 from the blaze. The injured have been admitted to the KEM Hospital and other hospitals for treatment.

The entire pub and the surrounding complex was full of patrons including many women and tourists thronging the fashionable area to unwind.

The Mumbai police have booked the owner of the pub for negligence and other charges for the fire, suspected to be triggered by an electric short-circuit.

There are many major corporate and media house offices situated in the posh Kamla Mills Complex whose working is likely to be affected on Thursday
