Bengaluru: Two people were killed on Friday afternoon after a massive fire broke out at a residential complex in Vinayak Nagar at Hosa Guddadahalli, Bengaluru.

The deceased were identified as Mehtab, 27, a resident of Delhi, who worked in a chair factory and 35-year-old Abdul Hafiz, who was working as a cleric in a madrasa (Muslim seminary).

Ten persons including four children and three women were rescued from the building by the Karnataka fire department officials, said Anucheth, DCP West.

The victims were rushed to the nearby hospital. The residential complex belonged to one Ibrahim Kaleemullah.

The actual cause of the fire is not known yet but some eyewitnesses claim the fire caused by a cylinder blast in the building.

According to reports, the building houses a foam based chair making factory on the ground floor and another floor served as storerooms.

The building also houses a madrasa on the first and the third floor.
