Fire broke out at the Dhaka divisional forest office headquarters in Mohakhali this morning. It was doused within an hour and no casualties were reported.
Situated on the road linking Mohakhali to Gulshan-1, the “Bon Bhaban” caught fire around 10:45am, said Shahjadi Sultana, duty officer of Fire Service and Civil Defense headquarters.
Four fire fighting units rushed to the scene and doused the fire around 11:30am, she said.
From what could be gathered, the fire originated from the fifth floor of the building.
“We believe, a generator spark set some waste papers on fire which later spread,” said Niaz Ahmed, senior station officer of Kurmitola Fire Service and Civil Defence unit.
