Massive fire breaks out at factory in Kolkata; no casualties reported

Kolkata: A massive fire broke out at a factory in Tollygunge area in southern part of the city on Thursday evening, officials said.

12 fire tenders were working in tandem to douse the fire which broke at a factory located on Sultan Alam Road in the Charu Market area of Tollygunge at around 5 pm, they said.

"The cause of the fire is not yet known, but large amount of plastic substances and adhesive stacked inside the factory is helping the blaze," a senior officer of the fire department said.

"Because it is a very congested residential area we are trying our best so that the fire does not spread to the adjacent buildings," he said.

The presence of Charu Market beside the factory was also a matter of concern for the fire department officials, he added.
