There were no reports of anyone getting injured and fire-fighting was still underway, they said.
Fire fighting vehicles of the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) and Navi Mumbai fire brigade were on the spot.
The fire started in a rubber factory around 4 pm and spread to adjoining chemical company and a cold storage unit. Thick black smoke from the rubber factory enveloped the area which made fire-fighting and rescue operations difficult, officials said.
Personnel from the Turbhe police station have been deployed for crowd control as a large number of onlookers also gathered at the spot, said a police official
