A fire broke out in a shopping center in India on Friday killing at least seven people, a fire service official said, ONAreports citing Reuters. 

Television channels said some people had jumped off the building in the western city of Surat to escape from the fire.

“Our firefighting teams are at the site and working to rescue them,” Gadhvi told Reuters by telephone.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Twitter he was thinking of the bereaved families.
