Mumbai, April 15 (IANS) A fire broke out in a portion of the set of television show “Paramavatar Shri Krishna” here on Monday, but there was no casualty, said its makers.

The incident took place around 6 a.m. on Monday. There was no loss of life, but the producers suffered significant property damage.
“There was a fire which engulfed a portion of our sets in the morning hours. We had adequate fire control measures to prevent it from spreading which was very important. However, the fire gutted the exteriors of Nand Haveli and our property house containing weapons (for the show) was completely gutted.
