A fire broke out at a three-floor commercial complex in Marathahalli, Southeast Bengaluru, late on Monday night, officials said.

The incident occurred near GRT Jewellers, Varthur Road, around 11.57 pm. No casualties were reported, and the cause of the fire is yet to be determined.

According to fire department officials, the blaze erupted on the first floor of Thalanki Complex and eventually spread to the ground floor and an advertisement hoarding board in front of the building. Sanju, a passerby, informed the fire department.
