Kolkata: Two people were killed when a fire broke out at the Golden Park Hotel in the heart of the city on Ho Chi Minh Sarani close to Chowringhee.

The fire which broke out around 3am in the kitchen spread to the adjacent rooms, damaging property.

Many broke windows in a bid to escape, while the guests were evacuated. The two persons who were declared brought dead at state-run SSKM hospital were employees of Tata Steel from Odisha and Gujarat. Five others were injured and admitted to hospital.

Fire engines reached the spot but it took four hours for the fire to be doused. The two died due to asphyxiation.

The hotel management was yet to make a statement at the time of filing this report, nor was any FIR registered.
