The cause of the fire, Bose said, seems to be a stove on which food was being cooked by the wife of the caretaker.
“It seems that the fire broke out from the cooking stove on which the caretaker’s wife was cooking. The woman herself suffered burn injuries and was taken to a hospital. The caretaker was also injured,” Bose said.
Bidhannagar Police CP Supratim Sarkar who was also present at the spot said the fire occurred at 9.15 pm and later electricity connection of the area was switched off.
The blaze gutted a major part of the hall and its projector room, known as Jaya II, was also damaged, the Fire Department official said.
