    Thick black smoke was seen bellowing from the temple complex, which not only houses the shrine of Hindu goddess Vaishno but also has accommodation for visitors to stay in.

    A fire broke out in India's famous Vaishno Devi temple complex on Tuesday, prompting firemen and security officials to rush to the site.

    The blaze has damaged the cash-counting room of the temple. No casualties have so far been reported. It's thought electric wiring is responsible. 

    Videos showing the blaze have appeared on social media.

    ​The local police say the situation is now under control.
