Two more people, out of 11 who were undergoing treatment at the Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery following the fire at Bailey Road in the capital, have been discharged. 

Now, three people are under observation at the institute, Resident Surgeon of Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery Tariqul Islam confirmed the matter on Sunday. 

Regarding the condition of the admitted patients, he said: "Three people with various complications including breathing problems have been kept under observation at the institution. They will be discharged when they fully recover.”

The admitted patients are Md Rakib, 25, Mehedi Hasan, 22, and Sumaiya, 31. 

At least 46 people were killed, and over 20 others sustained severe injuries by a devastating fire on Thursday night.

Firefighters rescued 70 people, including 42 in unconscious state, from the rooftop and different floors of the seven-storey Green Cozy Cottage.

The fire broke out at around 9:45pm.

Most of the people died as they jumped off the building or from burns or suffocation, said firefighters who brought the fire under control around 12:30am.

Fire officials say the blaze spread fast due to the presence of gas cylinders on several floors in the restaurant kitchens. People could not leave the building due to smoke in the staircase.
