Bangladesh building fire kills 45

YEREVAN, MARCH 1, ARMENPRESS. A massive fire in Bangladesh that raced through a six-storey building home to restaurants where many families with children were dining has killed at least 45 people and injured dozens, Reuters reports citing the health minister.

Hospitals are treating 22 people with burn wounds, Health Minister Samanta Lal Sen told reporters, adding that all of them are in critical condition.

Fire authorities said a gas leak or a stove could have caused Thursday’s blaze in the capital Dhaka, which spread quickly after breaking out in a biryani restaurant, and was only reined in two hours.

The government has set up a five-member panel to investigate the incident.
