Fire breaks out at Dum Dum park in West Bengal, 150 shanties destroyed

Kolkata: In an unfortunate incident, a fire broke out at the Dum Dum park destroying close to 150 shanties in West Bengal.

The fire, which broke out at around 6.45 PM in the slum area under Baguihati police station limits, quickly spread after around ten LPG cylinders reportedly blasted off, police said.

Twelve fire tenders fought for almost an hour to bring the "situation under control," a Fire department officer said adding, the reason of the blaze was still not clear.

"The cause of the blaze is still not clear, but the fire is now under control," the officer said.
