A giant plume of smoke was seen at the venue of the event after the end of the morning aerobatics display. "It is only because our government didn't relent did the Union government allow the event to be held in Bengaluru", he said rejecting criticism from Shobha that parking lot fire incident had blotted the reputation of internationally acknowledged air show. According to a policeman present at the venue, one auto suddenly caught fire, which spread uncontrollably and took around 80-100 cars in its blaze, resulting in a huge tower of smoke.
When the fire broke, at least 15 drivers were asleep inside some cars parked in the location.
The State Transport Department has also opened a centre at the Yelahanka RTO to issue duplicate documents to those who lost them due to the fire.
According to a report by NDTV, more than 300 cars have been destroyed due to a fire that broke out in a parking lot that contains nearly a thousand cars. No injuries or any harm to people was reported. Fire is fully extinguished now.

The cars then were pushed out of the fire area to create an artificial break in the fire, he added.
The fire started at 11:55 a.m. and has been brought under control as of this writing. CFT foam was sprayed on the vehicles to prevent spreading of fire. More than 10 fire engines rushed to the spot in a moment's notice.
