A fire broke out at a jeans factory at Hazaribagh in the capital this afternoon.
Four firefighting units doused the blaze, which originated at the makeshift part of Jeans Treat Ltd around 2:35pm, after half an hour of frantic effort, officials at Fire Service and Civil Defence told The Daily Star.
No casualty was reported from the fire.
Reason behind the flame could not be known immediately.
The estimate of the loss was not available instantly, but Jamal Uddin, managing director of the factory, claimed 35,000 pieces of jeans pants were gutted in the fire.
