Barely two weeks after a fire broke out at Bellandur, smoke was seen emanating from the lake on Thursday afternoon.
A senior official with the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), which is the custodian of the lake, said, “Efforts are being made to prevent such fires in the future.
We immediately called the fire department and the Bangalore Development Authority,” said Shonali Singh, who lives nearby.
“The lake seems to have caught fire at the same location as the last time.
It might be accidental or a case of arson.”KSPCB officials visited the lake to collect samples.
