A massive fire broke out in south Mumbai’s Wadala area on Monday night after an oil tanker burst into flames after an accident, fire officials said. The tanker driver was killed while the driver of the other vehicle suffered injuries.
The incident was reported around 10.40 pm near the RTO office on the Sewri-Chembur Road. The tanker, plying towards Chunabhatti, had hit another vehicle (a tempo) and lost balance before it exploded.
“The driver of the tanker is dead and and the driver of the tempo is injured. Since it was a local tanker covering a short distance, there was no one other than the driver,” a fire official at the spot said.
