Kolkata: Fire broke out in the 15th floor of the landmark Chatterjee International building near Park Street in the heart of the city early Tuesday morning, the police said.
Four fire tenders have already rushed to the spot along with two hydraulic ladders to rescue any trapped person, fire brigade said.
