By AJITHA Menon

Kolkata, Jan. 12 — A major fire has broken out in the sprawling  Basanti Colony slum area in Ultadanga,  Kolkata. The entire colony, adjacent to the railway line, is in the grasp of the raging fire.

15 fire engines have been rushed to the spot but the fire fighters are finding it  difficult to douse the fire due to lack of proper accessibility in the slum area. The fire is spreading due to inflammable materials like plastic, wood and gas cylinders  in the colony, they said.

According to the slum dwellers the fire broke out probably due to the bursting of  a stove or gas cylinder. People are trying to salvage their belongings the best they can but it is certain that many have lost their shelter and meagre possessions in the fire.

There is no report of any casualty yet. The slum dwellers are enraged and are demanding immediate intervention by the army in fighting the fire. They also want more fire engines and are angry over the delayed response by the fire fighters.

To compound matters, a road blockade by Trinamul Congress across the city is hampering access to the colony and affecting rescue operations.

The entire area is camouflaged in smoke and the wails of the women are rendering the air.

    This can also be done with a TFT blitzfire or another deck gun using 2 and a half or 3 inch for defensive or unmanned monitors with relative ease.
