300 cars gutted in Aero show fire in Bengaluru on Saturday

A fire in the parking lot in front of the Yelahanka air base in Bengaluru, where the Aero India show is underway, gutted around 300 cars on Saturday, police said. No casualties were reported.

The fire is likely to have been caused due to dry grass catching fire aided by high velocity winds, Director General of Police in Karnataka M.N. Reddi told IANS.

The fire, which began at around 12 noon, quickly burnt down the vehicles parked by visitors and public attending the show at the Indian Air Force base.

It gave out thick black smoke. Attempts were made to control the blaze by creating a gap by removing adjacent cars.
