"The teams contained the fire to affected tank only made operation possible in three days two nights", Chief Fire Officer Prabhat Rahangdale informed. "The other tanks are being emptied of fuel, but the high-speed diesel could not be decanted completely from the tank that had caught fire".

He said firefighters of MbPT as well as the fire brigade team are working in tandem to douse the blaze.

"Excessive heat caused reignition around 4.30 am on Saturday. Foam and other extinguishing agents are being used for the goal", said Prabhat Rahangdale, chief fire officer, Mumbai Fire Brigade. The blaze is likely to be doused only by Sunday morning as the authorities have chose to let the fuel in the tank burn out completely, considering that the foaming fire-fighting operations have failed to yield results.
