KOLKATA: A fire broke out in a godown packed with vinyl objects on the next floor of a multi- storey construction in Burrabazar region of town on Sunday.
Eight fire tenders were pressed into service to put out the blaze, which erupted around 10 am, an official said.
It required the fire tenders over 90 moments to douse the flames, the fire brigade officer said.
The blaze had spread to different floors of this dilapidated building, which also houses a lot of different offices and godowns, the majority of which were closed on Sunday, he explained.
“Since the plastic merchandise godown was situated alongside a staircase, the fire spread rapidly into the next and the fourth floors. The fire tenders could contain the blaze later 90 minutes. They are now busy dousing pockets of smouldering fire at the building,” he added
