Kamala Mills is an old mill complex which now houses commercial establishments. 

Eyewitnesses said the fire spread quickly, leading to a stampede since no one knew where the fire escape doors were. 

An FIR has been lodged against the 1 Above restaurant. 

The FIR says 14 people died, of which 11 were men and three women. 

It added that the transmission of a number of television channels which have their offices at Kamala Mills was affected.  

The people injured in the fire had been rushed to KEM hospital. 

"All the 12 injured are out of danger now," ANI reported the Dean of KEM Hospital, Avinash Supe, as saying.
