A fire broke out between the 20th and 21st floor of the Taj Hotel's [Images] new building in south Mumbai early on Tuesday.

Fire officials said the building, one of the sites of the November 26 terror attacks, was empty when the incident happened. There are no casualty reports in the incident and though the cause of the fire is still unknown, unofficial sources attributed it to faulty wiring.

The operation to put out the fire is still on, the officials added.
