Fire at Falta factory

    Diamond Harbour: A fire this afternoon in the Falta in South 24-Parganas ravaged through a factory that deals in waterproofing material for buildings and roads.

    The fire broke out around 4 pm when workers were busy in their routine tasks at the factory located at Falta’s Banganagar village. Initially, two fire-tenders rushed to the spot to douse the raging flames at the Alex Extrusions factory, which manufactures pre-fabricated waterproofing membrane.

    But with the fire refusing to die, one more fire-tender from Falta rushed in. By the time, the three fire-tenders could arrest the flames; the factory had suffered significant damages. None, however, was injured.
