A fire broke out at Indian business magnate Mukesh Ambani's residence "Antilia" located in south Mumbai on Monday night.

Five fire engines doused the fire in about half an hour.

Ironically, the fire is believed to have started at a 4G mobile tower installed on the ninth storey at around 9.04 pm. Chief fire officer Prabhat Rahangdale said that fire officials reached the spot quickly and fire was immediately brought under control.

Mumbai Police's PRO Rashmi Karandikar said police and fire brigade teams were at the spot and the situation was under control.

"The inmates of the building i.e. the security staff used one line of firefighting equipment and six fire extinguishers to contain the fire", a Disaster Management Control Room officer told DNA.

The temperatures caused two homes on the other side of the street of the prison to also catch fire. The incident started at the two locations simultaneously.


"The blaze erupted on the ninth floor and was extinguished within a few minutes".

A Reliance Industries Ltd. official spokesperson, confirming the fire, said that at the time of the incident the Ambani family members were not in the building. No one was injured.

Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani's skyscraper residence in Mumbai is the most expensive billionaire home in the world, according to a Forbes list which also includes Indian-origin steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal's houses in London.

6 vehicles of fire brigade rushed to the ultra-luxurious 400,000 sq feet Ambani mansion.
