Highlighting the negligent approach of many housing societies to fire safety norms, a random fire audit conducted by the Mumbai Fire Brigade found 200 of the 223 housing societies inspected to be non-complaint for fire safety norms. The Mumbai Fire Brigade has slapped notices to 133 of these housing societies.
