Kolkata: Fire at century-old state government building in Dalhousie
KOLKATA: A fire broke out at a second floor office of a century old building at Dalhousie on Thursday evening. Fire officials said the building housed multiple state government offices and the portion of the building where the fire broke out on Thursday accommodated an office of the department of youth services. 10 fire tenders including a hydraulic ladder began working within minutes of the fire call at 8.50pm and fire officials said although the flames could be arrested within the second floor of the building, the pocket fires couldn’t be brought under control till late into the night.
State fire minister Sujit Bose and local councillor Santosh Pathak kept watch of the proceedings till late into the night while confirming that the offices were shut and none were trapped. Pathak said a similar fire had broken out at the building even six months back.
