Fire at a show in India - level 2

Fire at a show in India - level 2

18-02-2016 07:00

In Mumbai, there was a cultural event at the opening of ‘Make in India’ week. Dancers performed at a stage when people saw there was a fire.

It spread quickly because of high winds. Thousands of people evacuated safely. Nobody died and nobody was badly injured. The fire brigade quickly came to the scene and brought the fire under control.

Difficult words: perform (to do something in front of people, such as dancing, singing or talking), spread (to grow), scene (the place where something happens).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What would you do if you saw a fire during a cultural event?
