The Bellandur Lake literally caught fire on Thursday when debris was set on fire which rippled into the lake where toxic chemicals are dumped regularly. The incident occurred around 5:50 PM.

The Bellandur Lake is the largest lake in Bengaluru and is naturally subjected to gross environmental pollution from toxic to garbage dumping in the lake. Gray smokes near the lake is a common sight, but what transpired on Thursday signalled a dangerous alarm for Bengaluru.
