Indore: A massive fire broke out at the Golden Gate hotel in the Vijay Nagar area of Indore in Madhya Pradesh on Monday. Fire tenders were quickly dispatched and the blaze has been extinguished.
Several people were trapped inside the four-storey hotel when the fire erupted and have all been safely evacuated by emergency personnel. As a precaution, people in a nearby building were also evacuated.
Meanwhile, the cause for the fire has yet to be established.
In visuals of the massive fire, the entire front of the hotel is on fire, with plumes of smoke billowing all around.
According to reports, a medium-sized truck and a tractor, with what appear to be water tanks in tow, can be seen standing outside the hotel, which stands on a crowded road.
