A fire erupted in a multi-storey commercial building in Bengaluru’s upscale Koramangala locality, resulting in a terrifying explosion and a dramatic rescue effort.

The fire reportedly originated in a café situated on the top floor, with several cooking gas cylinders stored on the premises. Residents in the vicinity reported hearing a series of explosions, likely due to the gas cylinders igniting.
