Mumbai: The devastating fire accident at the multistory commercial building situated inside the Kamala Mills Compound in Mumbai had disrupted the Transmission of Times Network Channels briefly for couple of hous. However the Network has managed to restore the telecast of News Channels while the English Entertainment Channels are expected to be restored shortly.
The high intensity of the fire at Times Network’s Mumbai office building prompted the Network to shut down its power supply and back-up power systems inside the office in-order to avoid any untoward incident.
Due to this the Transmission (unlinking and downlinking) of Times Network channels such as Times NOW, ET NOW, Mirror NOW, Zoom, MNX and Romedy NOW were stopped around 1:30 AM and some of them were restored after few hours once the fire was put off by the Mumbai Fire Fighters team.
According to the statement issued by Times Network states that Times Network’s News channels – Times Now, Times Now HD, ET Now and Mirror Now are operational now. The English Entertainment Channels (Movies Now, Movies Now HD, MN+, MNX, MNX HD, Romedy Now, Romedy Now HD) and Zoom will be back on air shortly.
The statement also added, Times Network is deeply saddened by the horrific fire tragedy at Mumbai’s Kamala Mills, where the Network’s office is located. Our deepest condolences and prayers to the families, of those killed and injured in the accident. The magnitude of the fire was huge, disrupting our operations temporarily. All our employees were evacuated safely.
The blaze broke out at the ground floor of the commercial building where Times Network office is situated around 12:30 AM. Soon the fire had spread to other floors killing at least 15 people and leaving many injured.
