A child was burnt to death as a devastating fire swept through a rickshaw garage and later engulfed adjacent shanties in Moghbazar area of the capital this morning.

The identity of the victim could not be known immediately.

The fire broke out at a rickshaw garage in Madhubagh area of Moghbazar around 8:15am, Mashiur Rahman, officer-in-charge (OC) of Ramna Police Station, told The Daily Star.

The blaze which later engulfed the adjacent shanties was brought under control around 9:15am, the OC added.

The fire fighters later recovered the charred body of a child from the wreckage of the shanties, the police official said.

Nearly one hundred shanties were reduced to ashes in the fire, he added.
