One person was killed in a fire that erupted at a tyre shop near the Hotel Road junction in Mount Lavinia.

Acting Police Media Spokesperson SP Sajeeva Medawatte confirmed that the fire that started last night has been put out by now.

Four workers were reported to have been inside the shop when the fire erupted while three of them were rescued.

Meanwhile, a section of Galle Road was also temporarily shut down owing to this incident.

Accordingly, vehicles travelling from Colombo to Galle were diverted from Dehiwela Junction to Bellantara Junction to proceed back to Galle Road via the Maliban Junction.

Meanwhile, one person was also killed last night when a tipper crashed into four bicycles that were stopped on the side of the road in Bingiriya.
