A huge explosion ripped through a chemical warehouse of a dyeing factory at Fatullah in Narayanganj early Tuesday.

Locals said the explosion took place at Bombay Dyeing at Bou Bazar damaging the four-storey factory building and several buildings nearby as a fire broke out following the blast.

A large hole was created on the ceiling of third floor while walls were blown off and an air-conditioner skidded off the floor.

However, no casualty was reported in the incident.

Narayanganj Fire Service and Civil Defence Deputy Assistant Director Al Arefin said the explosion originated at the chemical warehouse on the second floor.

Four units of fire fighters doused the flame after one hour of frantic efforts, he said.

On February 20, a massive fire had ravaged through several multi-storey buildings — which stored chemical and plastic materials — on Churihatta’s Nanda Kumar Lane in Chawkbazar, Old Dhaka.
