At least 15 fire-tenders rushed to the spot and battled the flames inorder to prevent it from spreading to other floors. A majority of the residents managed to evacuate themselves, including several senior citizens and children.

The cause of the blaze, tentatively believed to be due to a short-circuit, is being probed and the building reportedly has all fire-safety measures in place, said the residents.
