A team from the Hare Street Police Station and the disaster management department are also involved in the rescue operation.


"Our efforts are continuing. There are inflammable materials stocked inside the building, too,” the official said. The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.


Last month, a fire broke out at a wood godown in the heavily congested Nimtala Ghat Street in north Kolkata. It gutted the godown. 


The day after that fire, another major blaze broke out at a godown in southwest Kolkata's Taratala area.
