Chief Fire Officer (CFO) Sunil Kumar Singh said he received information at 2:50 p.m. about the fire that broke out in BarBeque restaurant on the fifth floor of the mall. 

Two fire tenders along with over a dozen firemen were pressed into service. They rescued the trapped customers from the emergency exit via the kitchen and covered the duct from where the smoke was flowing.
