According to initial reports, the fire was triggered by a short circuit, and as wires caught fire, smoke engulfed the seven-storey building.
“A man who jumped out of a window of the plaza succumbed to his injuries,” a police source told the Express News.
Rescue teams arrived at the scene shortly and at least 60 people were evacuated from the building.
Meanwhile, the injured were shifted to a nearby hospital.
Earlier on Saturday night, a fire triggered by a short circuit claimed the lives of six children – all siblings from one to 12 years of age – in Punjab’s provincial capital.
