Mumbai| A massive fire broke out at Mumbai’s dense Aarey Forest sprawling over city’s suburban area. Reportedly the fire started spreading at around 7 PM on Monday.

Fire tenders have been rushed at the spot and 100 firefighters are currently present at the spot. The fire has erupted near the famous Film City area and is reportedly spread towards Nagari Niwara and Dindoshi area in Goregaon.
