Guntur, Andhra Pradesh: On Thursday, a large fire broke out at the Kaza Toll Plaza in Andhra Pradesh's Guntur district, destroying a truck and two toll booths, according to officials.

"A fire accident took place at the Kaza toll plaza when a lorry caught fire due to a tyre blast. The lorry, an empty diesel tanker, was headed to Guntur from Vijayawada. When the vehicle stopped at the toll gate to pay the toll fee, all of a sudden, its tyre burst and the lorry caught fire," according to a fire official.
