INDIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - At least 18 people have been killed in a fire at a market in India.

Ten others are reportedly in critical condition.

The fire ripped through an illegal six-story plastics market around 4:00 am local time.

Fire officials believe it was caused by a short circuit.

They say the fire was quickly brought under control but toxic gases from the burning plastic has kept crews from getting through the entire building to look for more potential victims.
