A massive fire broke out in a seven-storey market complex in Gujarat’s Surat on Tuesday early morning. Seventy fire tenders were rushed to the spot, PTI reported.

Surat’s deputy municipal commissioner NV Upadhyay said hectic fire fighting efforts were on and the blaze was yet to be contained. “It is a large textile complex where traders had kept various dress material and apparel in their shops. The stock led the fire to spread quickly,” he added.

All the shops were closed when the fire broke out and no casualty had been reported as of now.
