BENGALURU: 300 cars have been gutted in a big fire at the parking lot of the venue of the Aero Show in Bengaluru this afternoon, according to a senior police official.

Huge plumes of thick black smoke could be seen in the sky near the Yelahanka air base in north Bengaluru, where about a hundred aircraft are parked for the biennial aero event.

Fire-fighting operations are underway and 10 water engines have also been dispatched to the spot.

“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,” tweeted senior police official MN Reddi.

The five-day Aero Show started on Wednesday and will conclude tomorrow.
