Deepika wasn’t at home during the time of the accident. “I am safe. Thank you, everyone. Let us pray for our firefighters who are at site risking their lives,” Deepika tweeted.
As Deepika was leaving the building, she met a few firemen who were working there and spoke to them for a few minutes. She said that they did a superb job and highly praised their efforts.
While leaving she said, Bhagwan ka shukar hai ki koi casualty nahi hai aur fire brigade ne bahut achcha kaam kiya. I just came here to check the situation.
No one was injured in the fire, except for two fire officials who were treated for suffocation. By evening, the fire was brought under control, after which cooling operations began.
The fire broke out at around 2 PM, on the 33rd floor and six fire engines and five water tankers arrived at the spot. Reports suggest that there has been no damage to Deepika’s office or home.
