Bengaluru, Feb 17: On Thursday, residents around the Bellandur lake locality were in for a shock after the lake caught fire and smoke emerged from the site. Toxic fumes emerged from the lake as it caught fire.
The lake has become a dumping ground for illegal debris and is known for its toxic froth. The lake has caught fire earlier too due to flamable toxic waste that is dumped in it. Here are some images from the fire:
