A massive fire broke out near the venue of Bhopal Foundation Day event on Thursday. Several firetenders were rushed to the spot to douse the flames.

According to sources, flames engulfed the area after organisers busted firecrackers during the celebrations.

The incident resulted in chaos in the area. However, no casualties were reported.

Bhopal commemorates June 1 as foundation day when 225 years of dynastic rule, which started from 1724, came to an end and the princely state became part of the Indian federation.
