INDORE: About 400 two-wheelers were gutted in a fire that engulfed three shops housing used vehicles kept for sale here this morning, police said.

The blaze started in one of these shops, located in Agrasen Chouraha area, and quickly spread to the other two adjacent outlets, a police official said.

The shops were being used to sell second hand vehicles, most of them two-wheelers. The vehicles were parked close to each other inside these shops, as a result the flames spread rapidly, he said.

About 400 two-wheelers were gutted, the official said, adding documents related to vehicles were also reduced to ashes.

Four fire tenders battled for a couple of hours to douse the flames, he said.

The cause of the fire was not yet known, the official added.
