NEW DELHI, Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- A massive fire broke out at a highrise residential building in India's financial capital Mumbai Wednesday, officials said.

There have been no reports of any casualty yet as almost all those trapped on the top floor of Crystal Tower building in Parel area were rescued, a fire official told the media.

"The blaze started on the 12th floor of the building around 8.60 a.m. (local time). It soon started spreading to other parts of the building before it came under control," he said.

As many as 10 fire tenders were pressed into service to contain the flames, the official said, adding that the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.

Local TV channels aired footage of white smoke billowing out of the building and people being evacuated by fire fighters using hydraulic cranes.

"A probe has been ordered into the incident," the official said.

Fires are common in highrises and factories in India because of lack of regards for basic fire safety norms and absence of fire-fighting equipment.

Some 14 people were killed in a massive fire at two rooftop pubs in Mumbai in December last year.
