The fire originated from a short circuit in the depot

A fire broke out at the Kishoreganj district police lines depot on Sunday, leaving a fireman injured, officials said.

Dulal Miah, sub-assistant director at district Fire Service and Civil Defence, said that the fire originated from a short circuit in the depot, which is located on the ground floor of the office.

He added that it took 45 minutes to douse the fire, which engulfed a large amount of materials stored in the depot, and only a portion of that could be salvaged.

A firefighter, Mohsin Miah, was injured after choking on excess smoke from the fire and was rushed to Kishoreganj General Hospital immediately.

Superintendent of Kishoreganj police Mashruqur Rahman said a five-member committee has been formed to investigate the cause of the fire, which damaged goods worth Tk5 lakh to Tk6 lakh.
