At least 15 fire tenders were pressed into service to bring the blaze under control at the godown, which is situated near the railway tracks in Eastern Railway's Sealdah South section.

An officer of Kolkata Police said that there was no casualty in the incident.
There is no report of anyone trapped in the blaze, he said.
Train services were not affected due to the fire since the godown is situated at a safe distance from the south section tracks, ER spokesman Nikhil Chakraborty said.
