At least seven people are feared killed and several others injured after a fire broke out in a hotel in Gondia in Maharashtra early morning today. Many people are still believed to be trapped inside the building.
As per initial reports, the blaze broke out in the kitchen of the hotel after a cylinder blast.
As the hotel is situated in a congested lane, it was nearly impossible for the fire engines to reach the hotel.
Fifteen fire tenders with over 200 fire brigade officials and workers are currently at the spot trying to douse the fire.
More details awaited.
