    Fire Breaks Out at Kolkata’s Priya Movie Theatre; no Casualties Reported

    A massive fire broke out at the Priya Cinema, one of the most popular movie theatres in Kolkata, on Sunday night.

    According to media reports, at least three people are feared trapped in the fire.

    Five fire engines have reportedly reached the spot and no casualties or injuries have been reported as of now.

    According to news agency ANI, the incident took place at around 10 pm.

    The fire reportedly broke in the office of the theatre, which is located in south Kolkata’s Deshapriyo Park.

    The audience made a hasty exit after the smoke filled the auditorium at around 10:15 pm, shortly before the show was to end, fire brigade officials said.

    Fire-fighters gave them oxygen masks as they were been brought down by the stairs, they said.

    The Dutta family, which owns the cinema hall and lives in an apartment above it, also rushed to the roof to escape the smoke.

    West Bengal Fire Services Minister Sovan Chatterjee and senior fire brigade officials are at the spot.

    Chatterjee said all those trapped on the roof were evacuated safely.

    The sources suspected that the fire was caused by a short circuit.

    The minister said all angles, including the possibility of the fire originating from a ground floor restaurant, would be investigated.
