BANGALORE: Nine people died and around 50 were injured when a major fire broke out in Carlton Towers, a high-rise office complex in Bangalore. The deaths were caused either by choking in smoke or due to injuries suffered when some tried to jump from the seven-storey building, fire officials said.
“Nine, six men and three women, have died and around 50 are injured. The condition of seven injured is serious,” D.G. Chengappa, director of fire services, said.
