6 killed, several injured in Mahim slum blaze


Four cars in a garage were reduced to a shell. Residents said the fire spread because of cylinders inside the garage. "The sound of the first cylinder exploding woke me up. I saw the whole place was burning, then three other cylinders burst in quick succession and the fire spread to other homes," said Jahangir Shaikh Akhtar Ali, whose home was gutted.

Police have also initiated an inquiry. "We are investigating other angles, including foul play," said Dhananjay Kulkarni, DCP, Zone V.
