All the people in the five-storey building were evacuated, Punjab Information Minister Fiazul Hassan Chohan told the journalists in Lahore.
The minister reached the shopping mall located at Gulberg's MM Alam Road, a famous shopping hub in the capital, where he inspected the rescue activities.
"The plaza is owned by former Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif's son in law. Investigations are underway on the cause of the fire," Chohan said while briefing the media over the incident.
