Calcutta, March 26: Flames engulfed an electronics goods showroom on Nazrul Islam Sarani in Ultadanga tonight, says a staff reporter.

The fire brigade was fighting the blaze, which started around 8.30 pm, well past midnight. Fire brigade sources said 28 fire engines were pressed into service.

Initial reports did not refer to any casualty and the cause of the fire. Located first on the second floor of the four-storeyed building, the flames later spread to the third floor. The showroom is located on the ground floor and its godown on the third.

Signboards outside the building hampered firefighting but they were pulled down on the orders of fire minister Pratim Chatterjee, who reached the spot.
