Major fire breaks out at Kolkata’s Bagri Market
Firemen tried to use hydraulic ladders to fight the blaze, but they but a dense network of power and TV cables dangling overhead made their deployment impossible. “All floors of the building are full of highly inflammable articles. The ladder was of not any use due to the mesh of cables. We are directing jets from the adjacent building. We are now trying to enter the building,” said a fire fighter. “You can see the situation here. It is extremely congested and people store people even on the pavements impeding movement. The network of overhead cables also prevented the ladders from the used properly,” said mayor Chatterjee.
