Bangalore, Apr 12 (ANI): A major fire broke out in Bangalore's multistoried Gold Towers building on Residency Road this afternoon.

According to sources, fire broke out in the NYK pub of the Konark Hotel, which is in the fifth floor of Gold Towers building.

Police informed that fourteen fire tenders were at the site trying to bring the blaze under control.

"The fire occurred between 1.45-2 pm in a shed on the roof of Gold Towers. No casualties has been reported so far. The fire has been brought under control," said Deputy Commissioner of Police G Ramesh.

Most of the people, who had died then, jumped in panic to escape the smoke that engulfed the top-most floors of the seven-storey office building. (ANI)
