Four people, including a two-year-old child, sustained burn wounds in a fire that broke out at a residential building in Dhaka’s Gulshan area on Wednesday morning.

The injured are Malia Anha Urmi, 32, Moni, 35, D Am Rafiqul Islam, 34, and Mashurur Rafeen, 2.

Urmi suffered 70% burns, Rafeen 40%, Moni 30%, and Rafiqul 2%, said SM Ayub Hossain, a resident surgeon at Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery.

Among the four burn victims, three are in critical condition.

Quoting the relatives of the victims, he added that an electric transformer on the side of the building exploded and caused the fire.

The fire was brought under control within an hour. 

“Eight units of firefighters rushed to the spot and brought the fire under control,” said Rafi Al Maksud, duty officer of the Fire Control unit at Fire Service and Civil Defense Headquarters.

The fire started on the first floor of a six-storey building on Road No 100 of Gulshan 2 at 11:37am. The firefighters got the flames under control at around 12:40pm.
