Deonar dumping ground fire: 74 schools shut down for two days


A fire at Deonar dumping ground two days ago has led Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to shut down 74 schools run by it for two days, as the smoke from the ground veiled the area causing breathing difficulties.

The schools are located in M-ward where people are complaining about foul smell due to the burning garbage at the dumping ground, a BMC official said.

Schools in M-ward including those in Chembur, Deonar, Tilak Nagar, Pestom Sagar, Shivaji Nagar, Mankhurd, Baiganwadi, have been closed for two days (Friday and Saturday), a corporator said.
