Many feared trapped after fire at Bangladesh factory

The cause of the fire, which originated at a ground floor of a multi-storey building of the juice factory on Thursday (July 8) night in Narayanganj, 20 km (12 miles) from Dhaka, was not immediately known.

All 20 people who were hurt sustained injuries as they jumped off the second and third floor of the building, a fire service official said.

Such accidents in factories, many of which operate illegally and without proper fire safety measures, are common in Bangladesh.
