Bhopal: A person was feared dead and six others were injured in an intense fire that broke out in Indore's Ranipura Market, the police said.

The fire is said to have broken out in a cracker warehouse, close to Chandravanshi Kuril Dharmashala in Ranipura market.

As the firecrackers burst and smoke engulfed the area, it threw rescue operation into a tizzy.

The fire reached a nearby footwear shop; the smoke and foul smell suffocated the residents stranded on other floors.
