Bengaluru: About 300 cars have been gutted in a massive fire break out in the parking area near the venue of Aero India 2019 at Yalahanka in Bengaluru on Saturday afternoon.

A blanket of thick black smoke engulfed the area causing panic among locals and those visiting Aero India on its fourth day.
