The fire, which was doused after five hours with the help of eight fire engines, five water jetties, and other equipment, claimed the life of a 32-year-old, as per a report. Meanwhile, another person was injured in the fire.
Civic officials told PTI that Manish Devashi, who was injured in the fire, was declared brought dead at civic-run Cooper Hospital. Ashok Dubey, General Secretary, Federation of Western India Cine Employees, said that a person, who was doing set lighting work on Luv Ranjan's film sets, also sustained minor injuries.
The fire started in a temporary pandal, where some wooden items were stored. However, the cause of the fire is not yet clear. Meanwhile, Ashok Dubey alleged that the contractor, who erected these sets was the same person who had erected the film set at Bangur Nagar, which had caught fire a year-and-a-half ago.
