Massive fire reported at Kolkata's Park Show cinema hall; third such incident within a month
On Tuesday afternoon, a massive fire broke out in Kolkata's Park show house movie hall in Mullickbazar, becoming the third fire incident recorded in the same cinema hall in the previous month. Five fire engines were dispatched to the scene to extinguish the fire.
The fire destroyed the theatre, charring all of the seats and the film screen. According to the preliminary investigation, the fire may have been set on purpose by someone. A property battle over the same building has been ongoing for some years, and residents believe that any of the parties fighting for the property may have lit the fire.
