Two employees were killed and 12 cars were burnt after a fire broke out at a Maruti Suzuki showroom in Kharghar on Sunday. It took firemen around five hours to douse the flames. The deceased have been identified as Jitendra Kumar and Krushna Kumar, the security guards of the showroom.
The Kharghar fire station said that they received a call at 5.15 am on Sunday and more than five fire engines and water tankers were sent to the spot. The exact reason of the fire is not known yet. However, they believe that short circuit may have caused the fire.
The victims were probably sleeping inside the premises when the fire broke out.
