Bellandur Lake burns again! Thousands of Indian troops are fighting a huge fire emanating from a highly polluted lake that has caused panic among thousands of people in the southern city of Bangalore. According to witnesses, the fire started spontaneously from the severely-polluted Bellandur lake on Friday morning. The smoke could be spotted from kilometres away.

The giant fire at Bengaluru’s 1,000-acre Bellandur Lake has now been contained by thousands of Indian soldiers after seven hours of strong fight. Videos of the fire show thick black smoke rising in the sky above the lake. Later in the evening, the fire started again at two places in the lake, which is Bengaluru’s largest. No loss to life or property has been reported.

As introduced by jumpingjackflashhypothesis, just imagine if the Great Pacific Garbage Patch off the coast of California goes up in flames like this lake. Everyone on the West Coast of the US – and maybe Canada and Mexico too – could experience some serious staying-alive problems from the toxic smoke.
