Bengaluru, Mar 05: A fire broke out at Bellandur Lake in the Bengaluru district of Karnataka on Thursday evening. Residents around Bellandur lake were left in a tizzy after a fire was spotted in the area.
Fire personnel and lake marshals reached the spot and it was brought under control.
''The fire took place at a private land nearby but due to wind flow, it also reached Bellandur Lake. Fire is under control now,'' Sadashiva, Chief In-charge Marshal of Bellandur Lake said.
