800 flee after fire at Batman screening in Mexico theater

PanARMENIAN.Net - A movie theater 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 theater, AP said.

A spokesman for the civil defense department of the city of Zapopan says about 800 movie theater 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 Friday. 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 theater in Colorado, killing 12 and injuring dozens.
