KOLKATA: A fire broke out at the plush South City Mall here on Sunday. There were, however, no reports of casualties or injuries, an official said.

At least five fire tenders have been rushed.

"The shops were yet to open when the fire broke out. Only the morning film shows were on. Everybody has been evacuated," said West Bengal Fire and Emergency Services Minister Sovan Chatterjee.

The fire started from the false ceiling of the food court on mall's third floor.

"The fire has been confined. I hope it will be controlled within a short time," said Chatterjee.

Disaster management teams also reached the spot.
