In a moment black smoke covered the surroundings. Many people from the surrounding areas appeared in front of the jute mill due to the shouts of the workers. The police and fire department were notified. The workers themselves first tried to put out the fire. But it did not help. The fire took a terrible shape due to the storage of flammable materials.

Eight fire engines reached the spot and started dousing the fire. Later two more engines went to the spot. The fire was brought under control by 6:30 in the evening, but the fire is still not completely under control. Firefighters’ initial guess is that the fire was caused by a short circuit. South 24 Parganas Fire Extinguisher T. K. Dutt said that efforts are being made to completely extinguish the fire with the help of ten engines and two pumps.
He said that there was no casualty in the fire incident. However, due to the weather, the occurrence of fire in the jute mill is very normal. It is known that the jute mill was supposed to have a fire extinguishing system according to the law, but it did not work. As a result, the fire spread quickly. It is reported that the fire brigade will demand accountability from the jute mill authorities.
