At least 90 residents were evacuated safely after a fire broke out on the 33rd floor of the Beaumonde Towers in the posh Prabhadevi area of Dadar here on Wednesday afternoon.
 
Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who also lives in the same building on the 26th floor, tweeted that she was safe and expressed her prayers for the well-being of the firefighters.

Later, after nearly three hours, the flames started spreading on to the lower floors creating panic among the flat owners who include several celebrities including from the business and glamour world.
 
More than two dozen fire-tenders, including sophisticated lifts and cranes, have been deployed to fight the blaze. There were no reports of casualties so far.
