MUMBAI -- At least 11 people died and four others were injured when a building collapsed during a massive fire that broke out at a paint factory in the northern part of India's capital New Delhi on Thursday, a fire department official said. Delhi Fire Services rushed 22 fire engines to the Alipur area after receiving a call around 5.25 pm on Thursday and brought the fire under control within four hours, its chief Atul Garg said.
