At least six people were killed after a massive fire broke out at a bakery in Maharashtra's Pune.

The cause of the fire, that broke out in the city’s Kondhwa area,  has not been ascertained.However some reports say, a short circuit  caused the fire.

The fire broke out at Pune's "Bakes and Cakes" shop on the ground floor of a multistorey building in the early hours on Friday.

The six workers, said to be north-Indian migrants, were caught unawares as the blaze quickly engulfed the mezzanine floor on which they slept inside the bakery.

Rescue officials said the owner had locked the bakery shutter from outside, trapping the workers inside and seriously hampering the relief operation.

Meanwhile, the police are investigating why the workers were locked in.
