Parked vehicles were seen on fire in the parking lot of the Aero India 2019 here on Saturday, February 23. Sources say that a heap of hay which was stacked near the parking area caught fire and the flames spread to the five vehicles that were parked near it.
The firefighters rushed to the spot and brought the fire under control. Spirals of black smoke emanated from the site of the fire and visitors appeared shocked and frightened. This is the second incident after two Surya Kiran Aerobatic Team aircraft collided midair and crashed on Tuesday during a practice sortie for the 12th edition of Aero India, casting a shadow on the five-day biennial Airshow that kicked off on Wednesday. The police who were in the venue rushed to assess the situation and conduct an investigation.
