Thursday's fire at Banani's FR Tower claimed 25 lives and injured 70 more, and it took six hours for a combined team of Dhaka Fire Service, Bangladesh Navy, Army and Air Force to douse the fire.

The FR Tower fire comes in the wake of another recent fire in February, which broke out from Wahed Mansion in Puran Dhaka's Chawkbazar area, killing 70 people and injuring many more.
