Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy has ordered a probe into the fire that broke out at a film set in Manikonda on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Six people died in the fire. The victims included two women, a 10-day-old baby and the watchman who had alerted a residential complex nearby about it.
The fire injured six other people as well. Police say the fire began at around 8.45 pm in a make-shift shed that was built by a local shooting unit. The fire spread to a pile of plastic and soon engulfed the residential apartment nearby.
