A fire broke out at a hotel in south Kolkata, killing at least two people on Thursday. Many others got injured in the accident. The fire reminds the incident of December 2011 AMRI Hospital blaze that took lives of over 90.

The deceased has been identified as Chamar Kishan and Anup Agarwal. Kishan was a resident of Odisha’s Sundargarh and was working with Tata Steel. He was staying in room number 406 of the Golden Park Hotel. The 53-year-old Agarwal was from Surat in Gujarat.

The hotel was located opposite the British deputy high commission and the US consulate general’s office. It was just a few buildings away from the residence on the same street.

Soon after the incident took place, Kishan and Agarwal were rushed to SSKM Hospital. But they were declared ‘brought dead’ by the hospital staff. Two others were taken to Woodlands Hospital. Besides, three more were treated at another hospital and discharged.

According to officials, the death toll could have been higher if the disaster management group did not evacuate 32 people from the hotel.
