Yamlur lake is on fire. It is one of the most polluted lakes of Bengaluru city.
“This fire was around for one hour… we also observed it yesterday,” said a resident.
“There is a floating oil, diesel such things which come from service stations, garages. This oily material also is floating over the river. It has caught fire. How it has caught fire, whether some miscreants have put a fire or it has caught on its own, I’m not very sure,” Pollution Control Board chairman Vaman Acharya told NDTV.
