Kolkata: The fire first broke out in the first floor. The panic-sticken locals
asked the security guard of the Bagri market to open the first floor’s main door.
At this moment, the fire did not take its horrendous shape. But the security guards
refused to open the door.
Later, when the fire took a major turn, the guard could not be found again. The
other guards who were with him also fled. Canning Street’s area where plastics are
available is just near the Bagri market. The fire tender officials believe that
the fire could spread to that place too.
On the other hand, the locals are furious over the guards escaping. The locals
believe that if the guard had opened the door in the first place, then the fire
could be controlled. According to latest reports, the entire market could collapse
