The exact cause of the explosion is yet to be confirmed

One person has been killed and two others injured in a fire following an explosion at the ground floor of a building in Chittagong.

The incident was reported from a three-storey building at Baluchhara around 10 am on Sunday, said Fire Service Assistant Director Farid Ahmed Chowdhury.

The deceased has been identified as Md Faruk alias Akash, 23.

The injured are Forkan Ullah, 60, and Kalam, 30, both hailing from Baluchhara.

One of the victims was declared dead upon arrival, said Sub-Inspector Nurul Alam Ashek of the CMCH police outpost. 

Among the two injured, one sustained 60% injuries while the other sustained 45% injuries, he added.

According to the fire service, the blast may have been caused by a gas line leak but nothing could be confirmed until the completion of a probe.

“Given that the building’s residents didn’t use cooking gas cylinders, we have ruled out cylinder blast,” Fire Service Station Master Kabir Hossain told the media.

A team from the police’s counter terrorism are at the scene to find the cause of the explosion, he said.
