A fire engulfed a coaching centre in Gujarat's Surat, killing at least 20 people
Visuals from the spot show several students falling off the windows trying to escape thick smoke
An initial investigation suggests the fire was caused by a short-circuit. According to a fire official, flames started from the ground floor and reached the top floor, forcing some students to take shelter on the terrace which was covered.
The fire which engulfed the four-storey building started at the ground floor, forcing students to take cover at roof. At least 20 students were killed, either due to suffocation or falling off the windows in an attempt to escape fire.
"Lot of smoke accumulated on the top floor where there were AC compressors and tyres which too caught fire. There was no escape route available for the students who got trapped on the top floors. The fire was doused in one hour. There were no safety equipment installed in the building," a fire official told the media.
Eye-witnesses claimed that there were around 50 students in the complex when the fire started. "Around 10 students on fourth and third floor jumped off to the ground to save themselves from fire and smoke," said a fire official.
Locals helped in the rescue operation to save the stranded students and other occupants of the building.
Those who lost thier lives May Their souls Rest In Peace. And also please pray for the speedy recovery of those injured
