No casualties reported, source of fire still unknown

Six automobile garages along with two buses and a private car were gutted in a fire in Dhaka’s Motijheel area on Sunday.

The fire originated from one of the garages at around 11:05am and quickly spread to the other workshops.

It took six firefighting units almost an hour to completely douse the fire at around 11:55am, said Ershad Hossain, an official of the Fire Service and Civil Defense control room.

The workshops that got gutted in the fire are: Rahman Motors, Sohail Motors, Arif Motors, Gazi Motors, Chittagong Motors, and New Janani Motors, Assistant Director of Fire Service Bazlur Rashid told Dhaka Tribune.

He said that two Silk Line Travels buses were completely gutted in the fire adding that a large number of batteries, used for motor vehicles, stored in the garages were also burnt in the fire. 

However, no casualty was reported.

The origin of the fire could not be known yet but the Fire Service is primarily suspecting that it originated from an electric short circuit.

In a similar incident, on Saturday, two buses were gutted after a fire broke out at a Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) depot in the capital's Kamalapur area.
