A fire broke out on the 33rd floor of the expensive residential building, Beaumonde Towers, yesterday afternoon. The building is situated in Prabhadevi and is home for Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone.

The actress gave a confirmation of her safety and wished for the safety of the firemen by a tweet, "I am safe. Thank you everyone. Let us pray for our firefighters who are at the site risking their lives..."  

According to the recent numbers reported, at least 95 people were rescued from the building. The fire was brought under control after the continuous efforts of the firefighting team and there are no casualties reported as of now.

Two firefighters, Rawrane and Achrekar were given medical attention since they fainted due to suffocation. Both were later reported to be stable.

Firefighter Murkar said,"The building security tried to get the fire under control by pouring some water but they couldn't do much." He also added that, "The security did as much as they could and it is not their fault that the fire wasn't contained since they are not formally trained."

According to the fire department, the fire destroyed an entire apartment of one of the residents who stayed on the 33rd floor of the building. However, the fire department has not yet revealed the origin of the fire.
