300 cars gutted in fire during Yelahanka Aeroshow in Bengaluru

Fire at government-run airshow in India destroys hundreds of cars

More than 220 of the 230 hospitals in Bengaluru reviewed by fire department officials for safety systems and norms in place have been found to be in violation.

A large number of people had turned up Saturday for the airshow as it was opened up for general public after three business days.

On Tuesday, two Hawk aircraft of Surya Kiran (sun ray) aerobatic team crashed close to Yelahanka air force base during the practice for the show.

In view of the massive fire that gutted around 300 cars in the parking lot, it was decided at a review meet to take extra precautions while organising such events in future. "This quickly led to spreading of fire accentuated by strong winds", a Defence Ministry spokesperson tweeted.

After much effort by the fire brigade, the blaze that spread across the parking lot has now been extinguished. It is suspected that the fire may have spread due to dry grass catching fire.
