Almost 60 shanties were gutted in a fire that broke out at a ‘jhut’ (garments scrap) warehouse in Isdiar Bazar area in Fatullah upazila of Narayanganj.

“The fire originated at around 2:30am Sunday and soon engulfed over 50-60 shanties around the warehouses,” said Narayanganj Fire Service and Civil Defence Deputy Director Abdullah Al Arefin while speaking to Dhaka Tribune. 

Ten units from Demra, Hajiganj, Mondolpara and Narayanganj Fire Stations rushed to the spot and doused the fire after one and a half hours of frantic efforts, he said.

The fire intensified because of the 25 to 30 garment scrap warehouses, that stored flammable fabrics and the cause of the fire could not be known yet, said the official.
