The incident was reported from the district’s Konabari area Thursday, said the fire service.

Deputy Assistant Director Aktaruzzaman said it took six fire-fighting units almost five hours to put out the flames. “The fire broke out around 6:30pm and spread to nearby warehouses soon after.”

No casualties were reported, he said adding that the fire started when employees of the warehouse were using fire to test yarn.
