Kolkata (August 11,2023) : A fire broke out at Eden Gardens late last night, but was quickly brought under control by firefighters. The fire started in a dressing room, and is believed to have been caused by a short circuit. There were no injuries, and no major damage was caused to the stadium. CAB President Snehasish Ganguly said that there was no foul play involved in the fire, and that it was a case of "misfortune". He said that the stadium's security and fire safety measures will be reviewed in the wake of the incident, and that additional measures will be taken to prevent future fires.

Ganguly also said that the upcoming T20 World Cup, which will be held in India in October-November, will not be affected by the fire. He said that all necessary repairs will be completed in time for the tournament.

The fire at Eden Gardens is a reminder of the importance of fire safety in public places. It is also a reminder that even the most iconic stadiums are not immune to accidents. The CAB is to be commended for its quick response to the fire, and for its commitment to ensuring the safety of its patrons. In addition to the measures announced by Ganguly, the CAB should also consider installing fire sprinklers throughout the stadium. This would provide an additional layer of protection in the event of a fire, and could help to prevent future damage.
