A major fire broke out at Innovative Multiplex at Marathahalli today morning, destroying screening equipment as well as seats inside one of the screening halls.

According to fire service personnel, they were alerted about the fire around 2.45 am by the projector operator, who saw thick smoke coming out of one of the halls of the building. About six fire tenders and 25 personnel were pressed into service and the fire was brought under control.

There are four screening halls at the Innovative Multiplex. The fire gutted the Screen 1.

An Innovative Multiplex official said had there not been timely intervention by the personnel, the other halls would also have been gutted. The affected area measured around 150 square meters and equipment such as electrical fittings, projector and air conditioners and the entire ceiling had been damaged.

The reason for the fire is not yet known. "The situation was under control and the officials are yet to confirm the reason for the fire accident," Deputy Commissioner of Police (South-East Division) B N S Reddy, who visited the spot said.
