A husband-wife couple suffered burns injuries in a fire that started in their 11th-floor flat at a residential society in Pune’s Dhayari Saturday night following a cooking gas leakage, said fire brigade officials.
The incident was reported at Ganesh Nakshatra Cooperative Society around 7.30 pm. The victims, Aarti, 37, and her husband Rahul Salvi, were rushed to a nearby hospital and being treated for the burn injuries.
Officials from the Pune fire brigade said the fire started when the residents were replacing an emptied gas cylinder with a refilled one. Fire tenders from nearby fire stations were deployed and the fire was controlled with the help of other residents of the building, they said.
Firefighters removed two gas cylinders from the kitchen while controlling the fire.
