Kolkata: A factory involved in manufacturing rubber related items has been gutted in a fire at Topsia in the city.
The fire broke out around 4 in the afternoon in the factory located on Topsia’s 38 Tiljala Road. With inflammable items stored in the factory, the fire spread very fast.
One by one seven fire-tenders rushed to the spot in quick succession. Fire-fighters faced difficulty in accessing the affected factory as it is located in a densely populated area with buildings and houses standing within breathing space of each other.
The fire-tenders managed to contain the flames after about two hours. By then, the factory had been almost gutted. There is no report of injury caused to anyone.
