No one was injured in the fire.The incident took place around 10.30 a.m. on the first floor of the Haldiram Building in south Kolkata’s Exide Crossing.

“The building has its own fire fighting system. Hence, we didn’t have to waste time looking for water and could stop the fire from spreading to other parts of the building,” he added.
The restaurant on the ground floor of the building remained unaffected.
