NEW DELHI — Indian authorities investigated the cause of a devastating fire Sunday that killed at least 43 people in a crowded grains market in central New Delhi while chaos unfolded outside a hospital where some of the victims were taken.

Firefighters fought the blaze from 100 meters (yards) away because it broke out in one of the area’s many alleyways, tangled in electrical wire and too narrow for vehicles to access, authorities at the scene said.
