Eight fire engines and six tankers from the adjoining areas were pressed into action. The fire was brought under control by 7:45 pm.

The Asian Age (Mumbai) reported that the losses were to the tune of Rs four million.

Launched on 28 March 2000, Sahara TV is a 24 hour free-to-air Hindi entertainment satellite channel offering meaningful programmes with a difference to over 40 million C & S (Cable and Satellite) households in India with added reach in over 66 countries. It has fully-equipped state-of-art studios in Noida and Mumbai, and its own earth-station at Noida for direct uplinking from India.

In December, the Subrata Roy-owned Sahara group successfully launched its own earth station in the country at Noida, near New Delhi.

Sahara TV has already started to uplink using the station, earning it the distinction of being the first Hindi entertainment satellite channel to do so directly from India.

The first-of-its-kind earth station will enable the channel to concurrently uplink stream of 8-plus satellite channels directly from India. Officials claimed that this would go a great way in facilitating Sahara's news channels plan when it gets operational.

Sahara Airlines Ltd. took to the skies for the first time on 3 December 1993.
