Bangalore Air Show Fire Accident: Toyota’s Support

As per reports, the shocking incident was caused by careless disposal of a finished cigarette on dry grass. The fire grew uncontrollably and spread to almost 300 vehicles (out of the many more parked at the location). The thick cloud was initially thought to be the result of a plane crash.

Luckily, there were no casualties. However, at least 15 drivers were asleep inside some of the affected cars till a few minutes before the fire started spreading rapidly. Even though the air show was temporarily suspended, the five-day event which started on February 20 was resumed later in the afternoon.

A parking lot in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, also witnessed a similar incident on 24 February 2019. The fire engulfed at least 170 cars.

In both cases, we hope that more brands will step forward to lend support to the affected customers.
