A fire broke out at a garments factory in the new zone of Dhaka Export Processing Zone (DEPZ) in Ashulia, Savar.

Nine firefighting units managed to douse the blaze after five hours, which broke out around 11pm on Saturday.

DEPZ Senior Station Officer Jahangir Alam confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

Initially, however, he could not confirm the cause of the fire or the extent of the damage.

Jahangi said early on Sunday that the fire service was informed when smoke started coming out from a warehouse on the second floor of the five-storey factory.

Four units of the fire service reached the spot immediately and started working on bringing the fire under control. However because of the intensity of the fire, five more units from Savar joined them soon.
