  • Indian police arrest 2 managers in Mumbai restaurant fire

The ongoing demolition drive and "negative sentiment" following the Kamala Mills fire tragedy will shave off the business of city restaurants and pubs by 25 per cent during the New Year celebrations, said an industry source. Mangesh Kalaskar, an activist, while speaking on this unfortunate incident said, "I made several complaints regarding illegal structures in Kamala Mills' premises, but the BMC replied that there is nothing wrong here".

As per the plan, officials have been divided into two teams to demolish illegal buildings in other areas like Raghuvanshi Mills and Peninsula Bypass park too.

Fourteen people including 11 women, majority in their 20s and early 30s, died of suffocation and several others injured in a huge fire that started from a restaurant in Mumbai's Kamala Mills compound late on Thursday night, and spread rapidly to nearby restaurants and offices as well. It also took action against leading gymkhanas like Catholic, Parsi, Wilson, Islam, Jolly; restaurants like Khyber, Zaffran, Shalimar, Nityanand, Sahil, Faasos, Lady Baga, The Fatibo, Grandmaa Café, Junk Yard, Woodland and hotels like Peninsula, Orchid International and Ozone, Retreat.

The police have issued lookout notices against the two co-owners of the rooftop pub in Lower Parel area, where 14 people lost their lives in a fire that erupted during a birthday bash.

Moline location closed amid nationwide shut down of Sam's Club stores
Sam's Club is so far asking those reaching out to contact the company via private message on Twitter to resolve individual cases. Corona said he will still be working at the store until it closes on January 26, a requirement to receive his severance.


The fire started in the "One Above" restaurant located at the third floor of the building, and soon spread to other restaurants including "Mojo's Lounge" and a bar situated on the terrace. The area has several restaurants and pubs, some of which had constructed illegal extensions, ignoring fire safety rules in the process, he said. The BMC is expected to continue its drive next week as well.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has said that BMC Commissioner has been asked to investigate the fire case.

The restaurants have been sealed as they were found violating the health department and fire safety norms. "Definite action must be taken where it is needed", he added. Heart goes out to bereaved families.
