Another two hundred have been injured as people became trapped by flames in the crowded Paravoor temple in Kollam city during a major festival, said State Residence Minister Ramesh Chennitala.

More than seventy people were killed in a massive fire that broke out in a temple in the southern Indian state of Kerala early Sunday, a top official said.

Another two hundred have been injured as people became trapped by flames in the crowded Paravoor temple in Kollam city during a major festival, said State Residence Minister Ramesh Chennitala.

The fire started when a spark during a fireworks display ignited a separate batch of fireworks that'd been stored in the temple in preparation for the Hindu new year festival called Vishu this coming Thursday, he said.

The fireworks erupted in a big explosion.

The temple was gutted as enormous flames engulfed the building within minutes, trapping devotees within the temple, he said.
