NEW DELHI, March 7 (Xinhua) -- More than 18 people were injured and 150 hutments gutted in a fire which broke out at a slum in Mumbai Thursday, a senior police officer said.
"The fire broke out in the wee hours in Shastrinagar slum. Though no one has been killed, some 18 people were injured and have been admitted to local hospitals. More than 150 houses in the slum were destroyed," he said, on condition of anonymity.
Firemen took over four hours to douse the flames, he said, adding that a probe has been ordered.
