The firefighters responded immediately and pressed 10 fire tenders into service to bring the fire under control, an official said.

"The challenge was to contain the fire and ensure that it does not spread to the nearby congested areas since jute is highly inflammable," the official said.

The firefighters brought the fire under control at 1.20 pm. Four fire tenders remained at the spot to carry out cooling operations.

The cause of the fire will be determined after an investigation into the matter, he said.

The exact damage could not be ascertained immediately, the official added.
