  • Fire Breaks Out At Deepika Padukone's Building, The Actor Confirms She Is Safe

At least 90 residents were evacuated safely after a fire broke out on the 33rd floor of the Beaumonte Towers in the posh Prabhadevi area of Dadar here on Wednesday afternoon.

 

Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who also lives in the same building on the 26th floor, tweeted that she was safe and expressed her prayers for the well-being of the firefighters.

 

A source close to Deepika has confirmed that the actor was not in the building when the fire broke out. She was out for the shoot of a brand. “It’s not her house or office which has caught fire. It has happened on the 32nd floor. The fire brigade is on their way already. Deepika is on the set shooting for her brand. Her staff has evacuated the apartment,” a source close to Deepika Padukone told.

 

Later in the day, Deepika also tweeted and informed her well-wishers that she is safe. She tweeted, “I am safe. Thank You, everyone. Let us pray for our firefighters who are at site risking their lives…🙏🏽”

 
 

According to BMC Disaster Control, the fire erupted around 2.10 p.m. on the two uppermost floors 32 and 33 of the building, and thick black clouds of smoke were soon billowing out.

 

Later, after nearly three hours, the flames started spreading on to the lower floors creating panic among the flat owners who include several celebrities including from the business and glamour world.

 

More than two dozen fire-tenders, including sophisticated lifts and cranes, have been deployed to fight the blaze. There were no reports of casualties so far.
