NEW DELHI, India (AA) - At least eight people are dead after a three-story building collapsed early Monday in Maharashtra state, according to officials.

“Five teams of NDRF are working on the rescue operation since 5 AM IST (11:30 PM GMT) on Monday after the news of building collapse. Another 20-25 feared trapped,” tweeted Satya Pradhan, director general of the National Disaster Response Force.

The collapse occurred in the Bhiwandi area of Thane district in India’s financial capital Mumbai around 3:45 AM IST (GMT1015).

More than 20 people who were trapped under the debris were rescued, including a child, local media reported.

The NDRF, local police and fire brigade are at the scene.

Several areas of Maharashtra are witnessing monsoon rains, but it was not immediately clear whether the collapse was caused by heavy rainfall.
