SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE' child stars Azharuddin Ismail and Rubina Ali narrowly escaped a massive fire that destroyed a section of their Mumbai slum. More than 200 slum homes were devastated and 15 people injured in the blaze, which started at 4 am on Thursday. It is heard that Azharuddin's home was about 30 metres when the blaze was brought under control.

It took at least 100 firefighters and six hours to slow down the flames. According to the residents, gas canisters used for home cooking exploded every few minutes in the intense heat, helping the fire spread and hampering rescue efforts.

Waking up to the sound of explosions, Azhar reportedly saw the fire burning in the sky just behind his home over the other side of the storm drain. But fortunately his family was all safe and well. No homes in his part of the slum were affected. We hope for the speedy recovery of those injured in this mishap!
