A fire broke out at a three-storey garment shop in the busy central market of Lajpat Nagar 2 in southeast Delhi on Monday afternoon, fire officials said.

The fire also spread to adjacent shops but was controlled by the firefighters, they said, adding no casualty was reported.

Soon after the fire broke out, the staff and customers inside the shop rushed out and people in adjacent shops were also evacuated, officials said.

A call about the incident was received at 4.10 pm and a total of 10 fire tenders were rushed to the spot, Atul Garg, director of Delhi Fire Service said.
