Mexico theatre showing Batman evacuated on fire
Mexico City: A movie theatre in western Mexico evacuated a showing of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises" after a small fire broke out in a garbage container just outside the theatre.
A spokesman for the civil defence department of the city of Zapopan says about 800 movie theatre patrons and employees were evacuated as a precautionary measure because the fire produced a lot of smoke.
Spokesman Julio Quinones said no injuries were reported in the fire early today. There were no immediate indications the blaze was intentionally set.
Showings of the movie have been accompanied by heightened security concerns after a gunman opened fire in a theatre in Colorado, killing 12 and injuring dozens.
