Fire at Mumbai complex kills 15 people

A massive late night fire that broke out at a Mumbai complex has killed at least 15 people, officials said.

The blaze erupted just after midnight at a building in the popular Kamala Mills restaurant and shopping compound. It engulfed the structure within 30 minutes, local media reported.

Six people have been hospitalised, the city's disaster management department said.
Police said the fire began at a restaurant on the building's rooftop.

Most of the casualties were women attending a party. A 28-year-old woman who was celebrating her birthday died in the fire, according to her grandfather who spoke to a news agency.

Kamala Mills is a refurbished industrial compound and houses several upscale restaurants, bars, and offices.
