Emergency services were promptly dispatched to the scene. Fire safety officials successfully managed to extinguish the fire, preventing further spread and potential damage to more flats in the building. “The fire has been put out, and the situation is under control,” a police spokesperson confirmed.

Despite the intensity of the blaze, there have been no immediate reports of casualties. Authorities are currently conducting a thorough investigation to determine the exact cause of the explosion and the extent of the damage. Residents of the affected building have been temporarily evacuated as a precautionary measure.

The incident has raised concerns about fire safety measures in high-rise buildings, especially during the summer months when the use of air conditioners is at its peak. Residents are urged to ensure that their AC units are well-maintained to prevent similar accidents in the future.
