A fire broke out at the plush South City Mall in Kolkata on Sunday.

There were, however, no reports of casualties or injuries, an official said.

At least five fire tenders were rushed to the spot.

"The shops were yet to open when the fire broke out. Only the morning film shows were on. Everybody has been evacuated," West Bengal Fire and Emergency Services Minister Sovan Chatterjee said.

The fire started from the false ceiling of the food court on the mall's third floor.

"The fire has been confined. I hope it will be controlled within a short time," said Chatterjee.

Disaster management teams also reached the spot.
