8 killed in garment factory fire

Local television stations are reporting that a fire at a multi-story garment factory on the outskirts of Bangladesh's capital, Dhaka, has killed at least eight people and injured scores more.

Television stations Boishakhi and ATN News reported that the fire broke out late Saturday in the factory in the Ashulia industrial district, just outside Dhaka.

Fire Department Control Room Official Mohammad Ali would not confirm any casualty figures, but says firefighters are trying to douse the flames racing through the factory operated by Tajnin Fashion. He would not provide any further details.
