Over 300 vehicles have been destroyed in a big fire at the parking lot of the venue of the air show in Bengaluru this afternoon. The cars in the parking lot belonged to the people who had come to see the aero show. Officials say the cause of the fire could be a lit cigarette that was disposed on the grass in the open field. Fire engines and an ambulance have been rushed to the spot to help douse the fire. The area has been cordoned off and police personnel has reached the spot to initiate the investigation.
DGP Fire, MN Reddi tweeted, “Totally about 300 cars burnt in the fire. Fire spread is controlled by creating a gap by removing adjacent cars. Fire under control now. No injuries or any harm to people reported. Likely cause: dry grass fire aided by heavy winds.”
