4 people suffer burns due to gas cylinder leaking in Narayanganj

A leak in the cooking gas cylinder is suspected to trigger a fire at a Narayanganj home leaving four people with burn injuries, say officials.

The fire was reported late on Saturday at a fifth-floor flat of a building in the Fatulla late on Saturday, said Deputy Director Abdullah Al Arefin of the Narayanganj Fire Service.

“A fire-fighting unit was dispatched immediately. However, the locals managed to put out the flames before they reached the scene,” he said.

Four people were rushed to local hospital before they were transferred to the Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery in Dhaka.

The victims have been identified as 37-year-old female China Begum, Milon Hossain, 26, Osman Gani, 25, and Shahed Mia, 30. All of them were apparel factory workers.

“Victim China Begum has suffered critical burn injuries,” said senior firefighter Arefin.

Locals said that two families lived the flat. The flames erupted as soon as someone turned on the stove to make dinner.Dhaka Tribune
