Fourteen fire tenders were rushed to the spot.

Once the fire started, it quickly enveloped a wooden stairway - the only access to the summer classes on the terrace forcing students to plunge out of windows and the roof. "Death toll may rise", said Surat Police Commissioner Satish Kumar Mishra.

Another politician, C R Patil, alleged there were gross safety violations in the building; the coaching class was being run from an illegal construction on the topmost floors and there were no emergency fire exits.
