NEW DELHI, April 23 (Xinhua) -- Two people were charred to death Sunday in a fire that broke out inside a car showroom in India's western state of Maharashtra, officials said.
The fire broke out at Kharghar in Navi Mumbai.
"Two people were burnt to death after a devastating fire broke out at a Maruti Suzuki showroom in Navi Mumbai today," a police official told Xinhua. "The charred bodies were recovered by firefighters."
Officials suspect the victims were employees -- apparently a mechanic and a security guard of the car showroom.
A short circuit was suspected to be behind the fire, according to the police.
Authorities rushed half a dozen fire tenders to the spot to douse flames and prevent fire from spreading.
On Wednesday, six people were killed and several others suffered burn injuries in a similar fire inside an electronics factory in New Delhi.
