The three-storey Laxmi Niwas building is situated closed to the Dombivli railway station and houses residential as well as commercial properties.

Some locals noticed smoke coming out of the building around 3 pm - 3.30 pm and immediately informed the fire brigade. By the time the fire tenders could reach the spot, entire godown was engulfed in the flames. Three fire tenders were pressed into services and the fire was brought under control by 4.30 pm. Meanwhile, all the material stored in this godown was reduced to ashes.
